This event is a Nordic Spotlight, part of Nordic Bridges.


For the first of the three sessions, participants will respond to visual cues and prompts inspired by artworks by Sasha Huber on view at The Power Plant in the Sasha Huber: YOU NAME IT exhibition open from February 5 – May 01, 2022, and curated by the associate curator of The Power Plant, Noor Alé. Participants will be invited to share their writing in order to receive positive feedback from their peers.

Writer’s Collective of Canada celebrates every voice, welcoming writers of all levels. Trained volunteer facilitators lead the workshops and create a brave space to connect through story.  

The workshop will be facilitated by a Writer’s Collective of Canada facilitator and Joséphine Denis, TD Curator of Education and Outreach Fellow.
