About this Event

This year Creative Facilitation Camp (like everything) is going to pivot to the online world!

Presented by East End Arts and Scarborough Arts, in collaboration with Partners in Youth Empowerment, Digital Main Street, and Community Impact Consulting (Parul Pandya), Creative Facilitation Camp 2021 is a three-day professional development series which supports artists, arts facilitators, and arts & culture workers in their creative facilitation skills. Over the course of three days, participants will learn how to:

  • Create safe and welcoming spaces for participants from all backgrounds;
  • Better understand the terminology used in Anti-Oppressive and Anti-Racist work;
  • Master the technology used for online workshops;
  • Allow the creativity of your participants to flourish;
  • Build trust between you and your participants;
  • Build confidence and feel empowered as a creative facilitator;
  • Develop creative ways to transform your art and cultural practice into an engaging workshop and/or learning opportunity for community members;
  • And more important, how to do it all ONLINE! You will learn advanced techniques for using Zoom to create powerful online experiences. You’ll also get a chance to learn about Digital Main Street, an exciting program that will help you create a website and ecommerce platform to support your art practice!

WHO IS CFC FOR?

This year’s Creative Facilitation Camp is for anyone who is wondering how to make magic happen in a digital space. This program is ideal for:

  • Artists who have participated in previous versions of CFC in person, and those who already have a baseline of understanding how to facilitate workshops;
  • Artists who are looking to develop into arts facilitators and educators, or practicing arts facilitators who are looking to improve their current skills and take their creative facilitation to the next level online;
  • Arts & cultural workers who are looking to improve their professional facilitation skills for working with groups of people (community consultations, stakeholder groups, youth, etc.).
  • Why learn Creative Facilitation? It’s simple: revenue. By learning to better facilitate classes and workshops, you can leverage your art practice into a whole new revenue stream!
