Re-Firing On All Cylinders!

The Evolution of a Canadian, Rural Expressive Arts Practice

with H. Fay Wilkinson, REACE

Saturday October 3, 2020

Noon – 2 pm ET


Necessity they say is the mother of invention. Often it seems to take a major catalyst to force a re-think, a re-arrange, and a re-charge. That catalyst can give us a real opportunity to jolt us out of the safety of the known and catapult us into new territory. Join me as I share how my Canadian, rural expressive arts practice has evolved in these ‘new’ days. I’ll cover what I’ve learned, the mistakes I’ve made and how I’ve found fresh, effective ways of doing my personal and professional work using technology. You will have a chance to say yes to a hands-on art-making experience which will highlight best practices.

Fay is an independent, Registered Expressive Arts Practitioner. For over 30 years she has designed and delivered Expressive Arts experiences for both individuals and groups with a current focus on mental health and those living with cancer.  Her published paper (in the international, peer reviewed Journal of Arts & Health), contributes to the growing body of evidence that now supports the value of engaging in creative processes on our mental and physical well-being.  Fay was awarded the Fellowship of Applied Education from Fleming College, nominated for the Innovation and Creativity Award from the Chamber of Commerce and is the founder of Visible Voices, a virtual community hub which encourages everyone to respond creatively to things that matter. She has been invited to speak about her innovative work nationally and internationally including the International Arts & Health Conference in Australia.
