Laadliyan x Moyo Paint Party

March 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Moyo Health Community Services, Laadliyan and Broadening Horizons present a community Paint Party! Join us!

Art as community care! Join us as we celebrate this year’s International Women’s Day with a virtual paint party. A Broadening Horizons facilitator will take us step by step through The PowerofONE community conversation and paint activity, which will focus on the power of language, discrimination and healing through art.

No previous experience necessary, just a willingness to have some fun and connect virtually! We also encourage folks to participate with people in their household. So grab your favourite drinks and snacks, and follow along from the comfort of your own home.

The supplies you will need:

– Canvas 16” x 20” or whatever size you prefer

– Acrylic or watercolour paints (Black is required and the rest of the colours are your choice)

– Paintbrushes

– Bowl of water

– Paper towels

– Pallet to mix paints on (optional)

– Fine marker to sign the painting (optional)

Moyo’s Virtual Safer Space Guidelines – Online Privacy Considerations

Privacy is one of our top priorities and can be difficult to navigate in the virtual world. These online sessions are public, and we can’t fully guarantee safety. While we recognize that no space is exclusively “safe” for anyone, we must collectively work towards mitigating harms.

We collectively strive to create spaces (including virtual ones) that are free of as many barriers as possible as a means of working towards liberation. This means that we’re all responsible for creating the spaces we desire, by educating ourselves, each other and ensuring that we are continually engaging in these conversations and creating relationships of support and collective responsibility.

Our spaces are NOT spaces for explicit or implicit violence, racism, sexism, ageism, transphobia, cissexism, sizeism, fatphobia, sexual harassment, and gender policing, or doing anything to another person without their consent. Acting in a way that disrespects, harms others or undermines these values will not be tolerated at any time and individuals behaving this way will be removed from the meeting. We reserve the right to assess and manage circumstances and situations in the best interest of our collective vision towards creating ‘liberation’ and ‘safer’ spaces.
