Event description

Description

As a parent, you have many in your life: aunts, uncles, friends, grandparents and children! This session will delve into our own relations and the roles they play in our lives.

Families Forward is a monthly meeting where families connect with other families, learn from one another, and explore issues that are important to them. Meetings are held the fourth Thursday of every month, from 7 to 9 p.m., at Gateway’s Learning Centre (201, 10941 120 st., Edmonton). Please feel free to drop in!

About the Facilitators:
Brooke Leifso is an expressive arts practitioner - using art as a tool to build communities. She has worked both professionally, and in the community with non-artists, specifically integrated rehabilitation programs, Youth-in-Care agencies and disability organizations. She has worked extensively with mixed-ability dance group, CRIPSiE and collaborated with Chrysalis in 2017 to build an artist led dance-on-film. She also works in professional theatre and has facilitated community art performances (community led and performed) theatre pieces including Love in the Margins (2015) where CRIPSiE performers discussed love, sex and disability.
