The solution is in community and play – which are at the root of the creative process. Creativity is work at play. At summer camp, your creative process will be given the life-affirming support, time and attention it needs.
This is art school for the modern creative – playful, fun, experimental and collaborative. Come to summer camp to be inspired, stay to play.
Set outdoors, with a nearby rain venue, this summer camp for creative adults will be a fun chance to learn something new and exciting.
I will be your camp counsellor. I am a certified teacher, poet and facilitator. For the last ten years, I’ve lead workshops for theatre, dance, music and poetry groups. As a self-employed artist, I write performance poems, create visual art and craft paper pieces and have engaged in a daily creative project for the last five years.
I have taught thousands of students to write and perform their own spoken word pieces through the Ontario Arts Council and the League of Canadian Poets. I am also the lead facilitator with Toronto Poetry Project’s Write Better or Whatever.
Perhaps most importantly, I still know how to play. It is woven into my stars. I hope play will be a gift you’ll give to yourself and your work this summer.
The camp runs from:
Thursday, July 9, 7 – 9pm
Friday, July 10, 7 – 9pm
Saturday, July 11, 3 – 5pm
