Art Chats: Advocacy Circle

Art Chats: Advocacy Circle

YRAC presents Art Chats: Advocacy Circle, a creative workshop to map our common objectives, regional challenges and unique contributions to developing arts advocacy in York Region. This workshop will be a fun, informal opportunity for participants to connect, collaborate and contribute through gentle creative activities and prompts.

Art Chats: Advocacy Circle will seek to:

  • Define what arts advocacy means to us individually and as a group

  • Identify some of the challenges we are facing in advocating for the arts in York Region

  • Identify arts advocacy projects and strategies already underway in York Region

  • List desired outcomes to ensure that the arts are valued and supported in our municipalities

ArtChats: Advocacy Circle will be facilitated by Sheniz Janmohamed (MFA), a seasoned arts educator with 10 years of experience in facilitating creative workshops and professional development programs for artists of all ages. Sheniz holds an Artist Educator Mentor certificate from the Royal Conservatory of Music and in 2015, Sheniz was awarded the Lois Birkenshaw-Fleming Creative Teaching Scholarship. Sheniz is a firm believer in fostering community through collaboration, compassion and creativity.
