I am very excited to be one of the 13 community-engaged artists selected for the FUTURES/forward Mentorship program that supports community-engaged arts practitioners to work together in a peer-learning framework, with experienced artists mentoring evolving artists.
I am part of a triad model where I was paired with a mentor who is a seasoned arts practitioner based in Toronto and an incredible environmental organization in the Maritimes, the Conservation Council of New Brunswick.
I will be facilitating the artistic expression of environmental issues and opportunities, including climate change starting with this question:
How might we express our ideas or feelings about climate change through art?
Participants will regularly meet online with me to scope out the project, determine and then execute their art project(s). With participant’s permission, there are opportunities to showcase the resulting artistic work.
I will be sharing here some of the process and outcomes of this exciting project!
