Saturday, October 15th
10am – 12pm
Facilitated by Danielle Boissoneau
In person, free, all welcome

This interactive workshop is designed to reflect the beauty of our natural world while doing the work of identifying our responsibilities to protect these wonders. Using words, we’ll flow for the water. We’ll use art as a method of reclamation and community building. We will determine how to integrate artistic practice with action towards sustainable futures. We’ll be practicing how to be a good ancestor.

Let us know you’ll be attending via Eventbrite at this link.

Accessibility: WAHC is a physically accessible building.
