Sybil, thank you for making a difference. We admire, adore and treasure you. Your devotion to the arts, educating and promoting creativity in the community is inspiring. See you at next year’s annual family BBQ.
It’s hard to believe for two magical year’s I’ve shared this space with other artists.
Your business understands how diversity can unlock growth and innovation for inclusion and belonging. With your vision, we can bring hope and inspiration to many more people with a variety of exciting workshops.
The more we innovate, the more we can inspire and allow others to do the same.

Had a great time meeting artist Ian Grant on the Danforth, Areej Art Gallery, this past weekend. His solo exhibit, “The Journey” is more than a collection of photographs. His inspirations come from traveling the world. Some images cheeky and others uniquely soulful where the images transcend those influences.

Make this your summer destination to drop in and discover something new and exciting!!! A dynamic opportunity to learn more about the artists and their body of work. All stunning and unique.
Research suggests spending time in a natural setting is good for your mental health. A family picnic is great family time with the kids. It’s also a wonderful tradition to strengthen ties with family and friends too.
Coming soon the Joshua Creek Heritage Art Center is celebrating its 10th Anniversary with a family picnic. I’ll be there with my rainbow set of harps to provide an opportunity for anyone interested to have an experience playing the harp.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to play the harp? Curious about this ancient musical instrument? Then you’re in for a treat.
Recreational harp music making is healthy and inclusive. It’s based on music activities that bring the community together. Come see for yourself at the JCHAC Family Picnic Sunday, June 10th, 2018. It’s the perfect opportunity to come out take part and have fun.
Excited to share!!! Date: Wednesday, June 13, 2018 – Time: 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM

Surrender to the timeless wisdom of your higher self and join us next month at the Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre for another peaceful Harping for Wellness Workshop.
Harping for Wellness at Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre last night was another great success. It’s a fun and safe learning environment for everyone.
So grateful for this creative space where we gather to inspire each other, learn something new and authentically connect with each other. Participating brings us into relationship with like-minded people who stimulate our thinking.

For many centuries the beneficial relationship between music and healing has been well established and there is plenty of documentation to prove the benefits. Music played on the harp is know for and has many healing qualities.
• Resonance from the strings
• The range of pitch and tonal Colour
• The relationship between sound and recipient
Historically the harp had been a symbol of relief and comfort.
”Frequency plus intention – equals healing.” Why? Because we are rhythm, vibration with aliveness. (our molecules, our atoms, our quantum particles)
Harping For Wellness Workshops are designed to encourage participants to engage with music by developing the basic skills needed individually and as a group to make music together.
Interested in bringing a Halton Harps music workshop to your community? To learn more please contact Francesca Durham.
