The Creative Spark is pleased to announce the launch of our Mentorship Program. Over the past 10 years the Creative Spark has connected directly with over 3000 youth and many adults. Based on our highly successful community focussed programming linking creative expression with mental wellness the Creative Spark will be providing mentorship to like minded programs of social merit. Programs that meet certain criteria will receive Creative Spark Mentorship support free of charge, no strings attached what so ever. This program was developed in collaboration with the Mental Health Commission of Canada Spark initiative and with the support of our exceptional advisors – see Advisors
The Creative Spark Public Service Announcement (PSA) program is pleased to announce the release of our latest PSAs created by the students of Canmore Collegiate High School (CCHS) in partnership with the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre Youth Champion program. Creative Spark PSAs start with simple improv skits whereby the students come up with their own ideas around the mental health issues facing high school students today. From improv to script students create each PSA working closely with their school guidance councillor and provincial mental health and addiction counsellors. The Creative Spark process enables students to write, edit, workshop and then video tape their own material and then share it with the school and interested communities. In this case Creative Spark teamed with CCHS and The Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre Youth Champion program to produce three PSAs.
The Creative Spark Adult Art Program this Sunday at Exshaw Community Hall is booked up. If you are interested in participating in our next Adult Art Program or The Creative Spark – High Five for Mental Wellness Workshop please contact us at email@example.com
The Creative Spark works closely within each community. In addition to the many professional educators and healthcare professionals we have had the privilege to work with a growing number of local volunteers.
Volunteers are needed to help with all aspects of The Creative Spark. From helping with Art supplies to supervision of our painting workshops, outside walk-abouts and improv activities.
People interested in volunteering with the Creative Spark are encouraged to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
