Fee: $50 (includes Breakfast & Lunch on Saturday)
The workshop will include a keynote address by Bonnie Chapman on Friday evening and two workshops with Bonnie on Saturday: "The Soul and the Arts: Creativity, Compassion & Community" and "The Body, Voice and the Arts: Energy, Spirit, Mindfulness".

Workshops will include hands-on art activities that require no previous art experience, just a willingness to participate and explore!
Bonnie Chapman is a Regina-based artist who exhibits, lectures and consults internationally. She is completing a M.Ed. in Art, Healing, Spirituality and Social Justice and writing a book on art expression as an integral component of whole person healthcare. She has been serving as Head of the Creativity for Health program for the Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region and the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency.
Bonnie's keynote address and workshops will explore how creativity promotes health and wellbeing, integrating your body's life experiences and expressing your spirit's energy flow through art making, self-compassion, mindfulness and personal reflection. Bonnie will identify tangible opportunities to build common ground through the arts to advance shared goals for healing the body, mind and spirit and transform the way people are being cared for on the healing journey.
This workshop will be of interest to those on a personal healing journey, educators, artists, health care professionals and caregivers. Space is limited--call 297-3882 to register before September 27.
This opportunity is generously sponsored by the Saskatchewan Arts Board Creative Partnerships grant program. Special thanks is also extended to the Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils, SaskLotteries and SaskCulture.

The Grand Coteau Heritage & Cultural Centre is located in the heart of Shaunavon, Saskatchewan. The Centre houses a museum, art gallery and the Shaunavon Branch of the Chinook Regional Library. Our collection is multi-disciplinary, including artifacts relating to the human history of Shaunavon, fine arts and natural history specimens of the area. A variety of programs and tours are offered in association with our collection, making us more than a collection of objects. Tours are offered on a regular basis throughout the year to school students and can also be provided to other groups upon request. Through our educational programming, we are able to provide opportunities for our public to enjoy the arts, as well as the natural history and the human history of our area.
GCHCC is also a popular locale for community events and special programming including Family Day, Canada Day, Boomtown Days, Halloween and December’s Parade of Lights.
Staff and volunteers work together to “Link Community with Culture”.
