ARTFUSiON artstravaganza

Let’s brighten up the last week in November with some pop-up creative fun at the Annex!

Our ARTFUSiON artstravaganza offers everything from playdoh to Nia dance to a fire show, so there will be something for everyone. 

Check out the schedule below!

All events are free but registration is required. 

Email info@aamp.ca or call/text 765-9383 to register.

We are in the process of learning how to do hybrid events (i.e. online and in-person at once) but we are still working out some details. If you are interested in attending but can’t join us in person, please register anyway and you can join us for our imperfect attempts. We will deliver any necessary supplies to your home with contactless delivery. 

Please note: COVID regulations are in place at all AAMP events so we will need to scan your vax passport, collect your contact info, and we expect you to wear a mask and practice physical distancing. We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment of our staff and volunteers on this, or on any other matter.
