What is it?

  • An introduction to principles and practices of arts that engage with and create community;
  • Many things you need to know to start your own community arts project;
  • An orientation to potential work or apprenticeship/internships with Jumblies;
  • A gathering of artists and others interested in community-engaged arts;
  • A mix of presentation, conversation, art-making, site visits and take-home resources;
  • A time to consider and discuss the challenges and contradictions inherent in this work;
  • A chance to play and learn with others with shared questions and varied perspectives;
  • An intensive, fun, thought-provoking, immersive 6-day experience.


Topics covered include:

  • Definitions, terms, & guiding principles
  • Project visioning and planning
  • Partnerships with arts and other sectors
  • Research: arts and oral history-based approaches
  • Facilitation: making art with people
  • Bridging and centering diverse cultures and traditions
  • Collaborating across disciplines and differences
  • Navigating and engaging with conflicts and challenges
  • History of Jumblies and offshoots
  • Evaluation, documentation & legacy


Facilitators: Ruth Howard (Jumblies Artistic Director), with Ange Loft (Jumblies Associate Artistic Director),other Jumblies and Offshoot staff, and special guest presenters.

Cost: $400 (with some subsidized places available)

Support: Healthy snacks and some lunches are provided. Translation, including ASL, and on-site childcare can be arranged. Our venues are wheelchair accessible. If other support or accommodation is needed, please let us know.

We can support out-of-town attendees with help finding free or affordable accommodation, and sometimes through travel subsidies and bursaries, connected with specific funding programs (e.g. our current Ontario Artist Exchange).

Participants will receive a certificate of completion from the Jumblies Studio. This workshop is respected in Toronto and across Canada as a qualification for community arts employment and funding. However, it does not claim to cover all areas and topics relevant to this work, and is one piece in a learning path.
