The CREATIVE JAM is a weekend of interdisciplinary creative workshops with participants jamming on a common theme. This year we are inviting four facilitators from the realms of photography, song writing and music visual arts, and fabric arts to guide individuals and groups through a process of learning through active creativity. There are five 2.5 hour workshop time slots over three days. These will be “hands on” creative opportunity for the participants. There are also mixers, where participants and facilitators get to interact and you’ll also get a chance to try out another artistic medium!

The weekend will open with a meet and greet on Friday evening around 6 o’clock, and end on Sunday with a public presentation of the works and efforts of the participants.

In case you want to wet your appetite a sneak peek at a couple of the facilitators we have approached to come lead us:

From the Realm of Photography we are inviting Tara Nicholson who’s projects examine remote and everyday land-use within a contemporary context. She can be found at taranicholson.com.

For Song Writing and Music we have asked Mark Perry to join us. With 8 albums to his credit, it has been said that Mark writes the kinds of songs other writers wish they had written. He can be found on line at: markperry.ca/

In the Visual Arts portion of the weekend, we are bringing up Joanne Thompson. With a Master of Adult Education she has a full bag of tricks to help students overcome barriers to creativity. This will not be a how-to draw class – but rather a dedicated time for seeing, thinking, learning, observing and recording. She can be found at joannethomson.com/

The Arts Council has contacted Pippa Moore and asked her to join us in Fabric Arts and lead us in Improvisational quilting. Should she choose to join us participants will explore this time-honoured way of working, though a series of exercises designed to open the doors to the possibilities of improvisational piecing.
