We will conduct "Drum Family Circle" workshops and activities with the goal of healing our community through music and the arts, to encourage communal efforts using art techniques and creative activities to engage participants and strengthen their cognitive, visual and sensory skills. Music brings back happy memories and challenges individuals to tap their inner creativity. When possible, these activities are conducted in a circle or a simi-circle depending on the space provided, promoting a feeling of inclusion.
