Engaging In The Arts, Together While Apart
At the start of the COVID-19 health crisis, we discussed the value of remaining together while apart together while apart uring this challenging time. Since then, through our COVID Democracy Series of webinars, we’ve joined together to discuss the importance of Indigenous Democracy with a discussion of UBI taking place this Thursday.
However, at the core of connection is engaging in the arts. Experiencing art is fundamentally essential to living well and tackling the adversities of life. Experiencing the performing arts not only brings humanity closer together, but it fosters our compassion and hones our creativity and intelligence.
With that in mind, you’re invited to enjoy a stellar night of online games, theatre, stories, poetry, music and song while sitting around a wondrous Virtual Campfire.
Join this heartwarming, family-friendly Zoom event on your own or with your whole household. Set up a candle to symbolise your home’s special “campfire”!
