Circles of Joy

Free Storytelling Circles Exploring Stories of Joy

Kick Start Arts and The Department of Illumination are offering Circles of Joy – FREE storytelling circles for Prince Edward County and Toronto residents.

Call Out for Community Members – Exploring Stories of Joy

As the pandemic wears on, it’s easy to feel disconnected from your community and to find that moments of joy feel fleeting. That is why Kick Start Arts, in collaboration with The Department of Illumination, is offering Circles of Joy, storytelling circles for Prince Edward County and Toronto residents ages 15 and over. These workshops will focus on connection, fun, and the creative process of finding and telling beautiful stories of joy.


Online Workshops will take place over Zoom on the following dates. You must pick ONE of the following options:

Option 1: Nov 15, 17, 22, 24 from 4-5 pm EST
Facilitators: Sheena D. Robertson and Mandeq Hassan

Option 2: Nov 15, 17, 22, 24 from 6:30-7:30 pm EST
Facilitators: Sheena D. Robertson and Mandeq Hassan

Option 3: Dec 1, 6, 8, 13 from 4-5 pm EST

These workshops are part of a larger project: Thirty stories will be recorded and housed in our online Archive of Joy.

Other stories may be shared in written form.

Artists from various disciplines will select a story from the Archive of Joy, and create an artistic response to it. Perhaps a dance, a painting, a song…

All of this culminates in an in-person Festival of Joy in Picton, Ontario on May 14, 2022. Put this date in your calendar… now!

Registration for these workshops is free and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants will be asked to sign a release acknowledging that their stories may be used in the larger project.
