Margaret's - Expressive Arts

Since 2014 the Expressive Arts Group has held space for modelling healthy relationships through community building activities such as creative writing, table top plays, call and response songs about our day, dance challenges, community painting, banner-making to celebrate diverse cultures/events, art exhibitions and the drumming group. In the walking group we pay attention to the changes in the neighbourhood, seasons and ourselves as we head to other Drop-Ins to visit. We have partnered with the Toronto Animated Image Society on an animated movie. We support community projects as well.
