The Nina Haggerty Centre for the arts does great work in our community, providing opportunities for people with disabilities to make art. I've volunteered with them myself, and it was an enriching experience meeting some great people. I even learned a bit about working with clay!
The Nina needs volunteers this fall.
There are many ways to contribute to the centre and anything you might do will be appreciated. Here are the main, current possibilities—but if you have another way of being part of the centre, they are open to new ideas!
If you are interested, please reply to Jocelyn, who will contact you about possible dates and times.
