Ross Creek reaching out into the community

We were honoured to work with over 125 new Canadians, mostly refugees from Syria, Iraq, Burundi, Afghanistan and other conflict zones. Ross Creek staff and volunteers provided free art workshops for whole families at the ISANS offices in Halifax. We followed this with a  Community Welcome Day which was a huge success! On Sunday, May 15, from 1-7, we welcomed over 100 refugee families for potluck supper, nature walks,  art activities throughout the day, pumpkin planting,  with live music, performance, storytelling and friendship.

These programs and others are just some of the ways that Ross Creek fulfills its mission of giving voice to Canadians through the artsWe are proud to connect with diverse members of our community and help them express themselves creativity. You can help us make this work happen by contributing money and/or time.
