In celebration of Arts Health Month in November, 2018, AHA! hosted a series of participatory workshops, entitled AHA! Tuesdays. These included Storytelling: Compassionate Listening, Compassionate Sharing, with Maureen St Clair; Songwriting: Wordpower in Song, with Kim Wempe; Dancing and Dreaming with Fingerpaints, with Nancy Turniawan; and Laughter is the Best Medicine! with Laura Teasdale. A Comedy Improv workshop for youth was also offered, which was well- enjoyed by those who attended.
Between 12 and 20 community members attended each adult workshop, some folks going to all 4 and some attending only one. They were very well received and we had many requests for more events like these. Most workshops could have been longer than the 2 hours. Feedback received for all workshops was most helpful for our future planning.
