Guelph-based, community-engaged arts organization, Art Not Shame and the Guelph Neighbourhood Support Coalition has teamed up to bring the folks of Guelph together with a city-wide guided art making workshop called Art in a Just Recovery.

Art in a Just Recovery focuses on exploring community care in the context of our ongoing pandemic recovery in Guelph. Over the course of eight weeks, participants will create individual art pieces and explore ideas through a series of online and in-person workshops, led by community engaged artist Melanie Schambach and an amazing team of Art Buddies. Each individual art piece will contribute to a large-scale digital mural.

“At this point in our ongoing recovery from the pandemic, the importance of having accessible opportunities to connect with community members across Guelph’s neighbourhoods is necessary. Art in a Just Recovery centres art-making in a way that individually considers its participants and aims to foster healing, growth, vulnerability, and shared strength in community.” says Maeve Hind, project manager for Art in a Just Recovery.

“The last few years have been difficult for our Neighbourhood Groups, with many of them halting programs that foster social connection and community belonging. We hope that Art in a Just Recovery will play an active role in reanimating Neighbourhood Groups and providing more creative outlets for self-expression and community connection as we move toward pandemic recovery,” says Nasra Hussein, health equity lead for Guelph Neighbourhood Support Coalition.
