ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Maria Gomez Umana: I have nourished my passion for arts and culture wherever I live while juggling jobs, family life and artwork. Paths have taken me to live in Colombia, England, Switzerland and now Canada. I have explored different techniques in visual arts and at this stage I am looking for ways to combine them, in search of a unique artistic language.

Song Mural is a sequence of activities designed in 10 sessions for a group of 10 to 12 youth from 13 to 16 years old. The goal is to give participants a space in where they can feel safe to share and explore ideas without judging each other in order to 1) develop a sense of belonging, 2) nurture curiosity, 3) strengthen bonds between the group of participants, and 4) create and try out new forms of expression. We will propose a variety of games and creative activities that will allow them to know each other, and build a sense of teamwork and mutual trust.
The Alexander Community Centre offers a wide range of programs for children, youth and adults.
