5. Misc News

Danielle Beaulieu, membre d'Arteast, offrira une conférence en français au centre Le MIFO, afin de permettre à ceux qui s’intéressent à l’art de découvrir différentes ressources et véhicules (classes, vidéos, livres, etc.) afin d'apprendre à créer.

La conférencière abordera aussi les avantages de joindre une communauté d'artistes ainsi que les nombreuses associations d'art qui existent dans la région.

Par exemple, Arteast, association artistique de la région de l’est de l’Ontario, offre des opportunités de création et de rencontres inspirantes.

Cette conférence gratuite aura lieu le jeudi 23 mai à 18h, au MIFO.

Vous pouvez faire circuler l’information dans votre réseau.

Si la conférence vous intéresse, merci de vous inscrire sur MIFO.CA, sous l’onglet galerie.


Last month’s Grow with Art meeting was met with locked doors to the City building. There was a glitch in the invoicing system, so Arteast members were locked out in the rain. Thanks to some quick thinking members like Catherine Niman and Mike Phillips, we were able to have a special presentation at the Lexus Restaurant by Rosalie Favell. Lexus even had a projector screen! It turned out to be a great evening!

Thanks to all the Arteast members who participated that evening.
