Envisioning a Better World Together

July 10 at 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Renowned playwright, Chantal Bilodeau is the FCCS 2021 Woodhaven Writer in Residence. As part of her residency, she will offer a free in-person workshop: Envisioning a Better World Together.

These days, it feels like we are going from crisis to crisis and it can be difficult to think past a sense of constant urgency. This workshop will take advantage of the beautiful Woodhaven setting to take a step back, go beyond our frustrations with the world as it is, and start to formulate visions of the world we want. Participants will use their imagination to articulate, in as specific terms as possible, what they hope to bring into existence for themselves and for others. As a culmination of this envisioning exercise, the group will create a land art mandala.

Space is limited to 25 participants. The workshop will take place outside. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to move around a bit. If it rains, we have access to an outdoor covered area.

To register, please email creativestudies.ubco@ubc.ca.
