Thanks, in part, to generous funding provided by the Government of British Columbia and the City of Coquitlam, Place des Arts presented free Artist-in-Residence workshops for local school students in our 2019-2020 season. Due to the pandemic, our workshops with Marlene Lowden, Christine Mackenzie and Stanton C. Jack were cancelled. See our 2019/20 line-up below.
Stay tuned for future Artist-in-Residence workshops.
View a short video and e-book created by artist Jocelyn Sanchez as a legacy project of artist in residence Jo Billows’ storytelling workshops held for local school children and during our annual seasonal event, Reflections: Lantern Making and Storytelling in December, 2019.
The participants in these workshops created personal and collective reflections around the statement, “I am from.” Sanchez used these “reflections” to create her illustrations that illuminate the diversity and connections within our community.
In diversity there is beauty and there is strength. It is not our differences that divide us, it is the inability to recognize, accept and celebrate those difference. ~ Maya Angelou
