We try to keep busy!
Some things we have been working on are our community art mosaic, a CD mosaic and some props for our upcoming community celebration.
The wings are coming along nicely. Stop in and check them out. We have started working on another mosaic made of CD cases and with a design by Michelle Stoney themed Every Child Matters. GoByBike week happened at the end of May. Be sure to register for the fall GoByBike weeks because there will be more.
We are also working on a chrysalis for an upcoming celebration which is pictured here with one of our young adults and our executive director. Find more on our Instagram page by clicking here.
Coming up in July
Sundays - Storytelling and Digital Literacy. Share your stories with others and work with technology. Personal stories, fictional stories, short or long. We'd love to hear them. Digital literacy can be whatever you'd like. Make a collage or type your story and add pictures and backgrounds. Whatever you can think of, we're here to help.
Mondays - Make and Mend & Beading. Stop in and use whatever fabric and tools you need. Our staff is here to show where things are and make sure you are supported through your project. We have plenty of beads and materials for beading as well.
Tuesdays - Book Club and Writing Workshop. This day is all about words. Do you like reading and writing? Well this is the day for you. Join our book club and read relevant books for indigenous issues. Suggest a book that you would like to read. Our writing workshop is later in the evening. Writing topics include self reflection, how you're doing, what your plans are or what is important to you in society today.
Wednesdays - Creative Collaboration and Games Night. Stop by and let us know what kind of projects you would like to work on and add your personal touch to our current projects. Games Night has changed a little for the warmer weather. We will be going to the courthouse lawn for outdoor games if the weather is nice and warm.
Thursdays - Peer Support and GSA. Let us know what your questions and concerns about what's happening in the world or in your personal life. We have started a GSA for young adults ages 15-30 years old at the request of one of our youth. We are looking for input from the community on what you would like to see happening.
Fridays - Fun Friday Community Adventures. Each week we will have different plans to go out in the community for some fun and activity.
Saturdays - Performance, Music and Theatre & Indie Movies. Each Saturday, we will explore performance art, theatre and music. Whether you are new to this type of expression or have done this since you could remember or anywhere in between, let's have some fun with this. Stop by and check it out!Indie Movies in the evening. If you are interested movies that focus on current local and global social, we'd love to invite you to join us and have a short discussion afterwards about your thoughts.
What have we done? Well, let me tell you.
We had a drum making workshop with John Lincoln. We also started making cedar roses; the first step in an upcoming project. Another project we started is the community art mosaic, pictured here.
We would like you to know that our young adults get to enjoy two days a week of homemade food and, as part of the Second Harvest program, we get sandwiches from Safeway regularly for our youth to enjoy.
Check out our instagram for photos and stories.
