Castlegar & District Community Services Society is hosting some exciting events for free during Victims and Survivors of Crime Week happening November 14-20.

Workshop 1 – Enjoy a workshop about writing towards mental well-being where therapeutic uses of writing are explored. Open to anyone interested to support this issue and who’d like to connect with others. Pen, notebook, coffee/tea and muffins will be provided. This workshop will be offered in person if people have a vaccine passport, but if there’s enough interest it can also be offered a second time by zoom. Limited space available. This is happening on November 16 from 10 to noon.

Workshop 2 – Take part in an online yoga class on November 17 from 10 to 11 am. It’s a very gentle flow yoga class that anyone with no previous yoga experience is able to enjoy!

Workshop 3 – Have fun with a mask and story building puppet workshop. Learn some puppet animation skills, after you sculpt a mask and begin to create a story. Within the carefully curated safety of the group we will begin to unpack some of those big feelings and emotions around this issue. Pizza and beverages will be provided – youth (12+) and parents welcome! Vaccine passport required. Limited space available. This is happening on November 17 from 6-9 pm.

Please register for any of these workshops at 250-365-2104 or email vscw@cdcss.ca expressing which workshop you have interest for and providing your name and best phone number to contact you.
