Recruiting Art Buddies!

I hope you are all keeping well! I wanted to reach out to you about a new project in partnership with Art Not Shame (ANS) called Art in a Just Recovery (AIJR). It is the 2nd installment of ANS's mural series. You can find the 1st one called Art in Hard Times here.

We are currently recruiting art buddies from the GNSC family to be a part of this project and help with the facilitation of participants who will create individual art pieces that eventually form a large-scale digital mural (that we are hoping to install at Guelph Farmers Market).

Orientation and training begins in October 2022 with actual workshop facilitation happening from Feb to June 2023. GNSC art buddies will be paired off with an experienced artist facilitator from Art Not Shame (which is a lot less daunting) for the duration of the art workshops.

If you are interested, or would like to find out more please reach out to Nasra Hussein for more information!

Take Pride in yOur Neighbourhood

Just a reminder, discarded cigarette butts are garbage that pollutes the environment and can sicken animals. Please do not throw your butts on the ground anywhere but especially not near the school where our children walk and play every day. Besides polluting our ground, the butts get washed into the storm drain system. It also gives our children the message that pollution of this sort is acceptable.
