The Atira Community Arts & Crafts Workshop is an opportunity for UBC students and Atira staff to organize and implement two days of activities for the women living at Atira Women’s Resource Society. During these two days, students will:
- Help choose, prepare and cook a meal to share with the residents. Students will ensure that the kitchen space is cleaned up afterwards.
- Participate in a craft-making activity using cedar (exact craft activity is to be determined). Students will be responsible for assisting with the crafting process, including clean-up of the crafting space afterwards.
The project will align with and support Atira Women’s Resource Society’s feminist-based philosophy, and will consider all forms of oppression facing the women and children who access Atira’s services.
