Volunteer, Pointe-St-Charles Art School

Julia G. N., is a volunteer at the Pointe-St-Charles Art School. Her commitment to the school began as a placement for an embedded artist Theatre class at Concordia University. The class was an interdisciplinary effort that allowed students to experience unique community-engaged efforts in the Pointe.

You can learn more about the class through their site: http://righttothecity.atwaterlibrary.ca/
Another interesting outcome of the class is a memory-scape map of the Pointe, using interactive Geo-locators to mark historic highlights, and bring attention to current artistic projects happening in the neighbourhood: http://rtc.cohds.com/

Because of her positive experiences with this project, Julia has decided to continue working with the school, in her new capacity as a regular blog poster. She is a striving creative arts therapist, dedicated to understanding the ways in which art can illuminate the unconscious and distance us from our sufferings. Community-engaged efforts are of utmost importance to her, and she is deeply inspired by the selflessness and determination offered by the founders of Pointe-St-Charles Art School.
Keep a look out for her upcoming entries, and for now, enjoy the outcome of her placement here at the school by way of listening to her final project! A three-minute audio file, edited in collaboration with Russell Donohue, which ‘affectively compresses’ the musings of some of the hearts and minds of the school, a journey into the essence of the space
