What Is #ArtsCanConnects?
In response to COVID-19, ArtsCan Circle artists will not be traveling to Pikangikum, Attawapiskat, Fort Albany (ON), Gjoa Haven (NU), Natuashish (NL), and Carcross (YT) to facilitate creative art workshops until further notice. We continue to believe that stories remain the most powerful medicine. We remain committed to continuing our relationships with the youth and our amazing teams of artists. The ArtsCan Circle Team
ArtsCan Circle is excited to announce #ArtsCanConnects, a platform dedicated to connecting and amplifying youth in northern communities with Artists across the country. We've always visited communities in person; now, we are focused on connecting online. We've reached out to communities, and we want to know what is keeping them inspired and connected, especially through creativity. We're looking for photos, poems, videos, a few spoken words about their day and what is going on in their communities. We're also creating online content and workshops to connect when we can't be there in person. Part of this initiative is growing our community of artists, and reach to provide more inspiration and amplification of the creativity of youth in Northern communities during these times.
