Re-Purposing Trauma


On Thursday, November 16th at 6p.m., SAULT STE. MARIE MPP, ROSS ROMANO, will be at the Ideal Art Space, 724 Queen Street East, as THE ARTSPEAKS PROJECT reveals its year-end exhibit of collected works. The exhibit, “Re-Purposing Trauma,” is the culmination of the workshop series provided over the past year by The ARTSPEAKS Team to women dealing with trauma in the community of SAULT STE. MARIE and the ALGOMA DISTRICT.

MPP, ROSS ROMANO, and CONNIE WITTY, an Ontario Trillium Foundation volunteer, will attend the exhibit opening and will formally present THE ARTSPEAKS PROJECT a plaque to mark the work done as a result of receiving a grant from the Foundation in early 2017.

MARIA PARRELLA-ILARIA, Co-ordinator of The ARTSPEAKS Project, will be talking about the project and the impact it’s had on the community.
