The Loneliness Collective Open Studios

This event took place on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 11:00am
Jenni House (near the Fireweed Market grounds)

This is a free event for everyone!

Genevieve Gagnon is the Jenni House artist in residence for the month of September. This event is part of the Jenni House Artist Residency Program.

The Loneliness Collective is a new initiative that aims to address social issues and break isolation through socially engaged, community-based art projects. This month, as part of our Jenni House residency, we’ll be hosting a series of community open studios. Open studios are inclusive and non-judgmental creative spaces intended to support connections between people, knowledge sharing, and wellbeing. At the open studios, you’ll be able to:

- Have access to free art materials and supplies, or bring your own project to work on (or just come hang out!)

- Learn about community open studios, the Art Hives network, and social practice art

- Let us know what you’d like to see from The Loneliness Collective in the future

- Connect with us to get involved and stay informed about upcoming projects
