About #CommunitiesCreate

The Communities Create Initiative empowers Canadians to express themselves using creativity, to build their skills, and find human connection during this unprecedented time. Participants are invited to engage in a series of free online workshops sponsored by the Canadian creative community, to help them convey how they are feeling through a variety of different mediums, and then share their work online.

Each workshop will approach the question “how are you feeling right now?” in a number of different ways. Once complete, participants will be invited to share their creative works using the hashtag #CommunitiesCreate. The content will be compiled into a “time capsule” to form a collective look at how Canadians are feeling through the pandemic.

How to participate:

  • Join a communities create workshop.
  • Create an expression of how you are feeling using the skills you learn.
  • Share your creation with the world using the hashtag #communitiescreate
