Community Arts Jam

A gathering and skill share for community-engaged artists, creative facilitators and artist educators. We create space to come together, share best practices, lead or test our creative ideas, build new resources and get creative with one.

The 2nd annual Community Arts Jam took place on October 17th, 2014 on the Toronto Islands The Community Arts Jam was an exciting mash up and peer-to-peer exchange for creative people who lead groups through arts based programs or workshops either as a facilitator, community artist and community organizers centred around a specific theme. This year we will explore themese of race & equity in community based programming, arts education & organizational development.

Our goal is to create a gathering where we can come together to share best practices, lead or test our creative ideas/actvities, build new resources and get creative with one another in a fun, hands on and supportive environment that this year will investigate inclusivity and anti-oppression based arts practices in community . The event will feature special guests, art making and open space dialogues fueled by what we collectively bring to this unique community arts jam!


Join us for the next Courage Lab! Date to be announced!  A continuation of the dialogue and creative explorations on equity in community engaged arts!
