Caregivers-Parents-Grandparents, anyone taking care of a child

Our current times are ever evolving and challenging. And sometimes raising a child who has gone through trauma or has special needs can prove more challenging, especially as we try to achieve a good work and home life balance. In the midst of all of this, we sometimes forget about our own needs—that is to be seen, heard, and understood by our loved ones and the community around us. That is why we offer this support group as a way to help you unpack, connect, and learn from other parents/caregivers so that you don't have to feel alone. Through facilitated discussions and art-based activities, together we create a unique space that is safe, nurturing and positive to your own emotional growth and wellbeing.

Community Healing HeARTs Open Studio (for adults-parents and non parents) (offered online)

Do you often feel that you are going through life and its challenges alone? Maybe there are inter-generational issues holding you back that you need to express? Do you find it difficult to use words to express what it is that you are feeling? If you answered yes to any of the above, then the Community Healing HeARTs Open Studio may be the right place for you to discover and express yourself!

The open studio is a safe space for adults (older than 20 years of age) to come together and share their stories. With the aide of an Art Psychotherapist, participants are invited to express themselves on a range of topics using a variety of media–ranging from painting, clay, drawing, to other mixed media materials of choice.


The open art studio is about so much more than simply making art!  It’s a place to talk, share, and re-connect with the community. It’s also about building self-respect and empowerment – not so much about technical know-how. So you can do what you already know and love, discover your creative potential by trying something new or just relax and chat to others!
