Sculpting Week

Connect. Create. Unite.

The Communities Create Initiative empowers Canadians to express themselves using creativity, to build their skills, and find human connection during this unprecedented time. Participants are invited to engage in a series of free online workshops sponsored by the Canadian creative community, to help them convey how they are feeling through a variety of different mediums, and then share their work online.

Collaborators

This initiative is supported by a consortium of Canadian media and arts organizations that will host weekly creative workshops led by Canadian artists and makers across a variety of disciplines. The workshops are free and open to Canadians of all ages and levels of experience.

Be a part of #CommunitiesCreate

How are you feeling right now?

Each workshop will approach the question “how are you feeling right now?” in a number of different ways. Once complete, participants will be invited to share their creative works using the hashtag #CommunitiesCreate. The content will be compiled into a “time capsule” to form a collective look at how Canadians are feeling through the pandemic.

How to participate

Join a Communities Create Initiative workshop.

Create an expression of how you are feeling using the skills you learn.

Share your creation with the world using the hashtag #CommunitiesCreate

Every Monday at 12 pm EST, a new creative workshop will go live.

Each participatory, online workshop will last approximately 45 to 90 minutes.
