SPARK! Penticton


April 3, 2018—Penticton, BC: Step into the role of facilitator and teacher with more strength, enthusiasm, and inspiration. SPARK is a 4-day experiential workshop (a 32hr creative facilitation training) focused on increasing your leadership skills.

We know that diversity is a resource. We also know that, as Indigenous peoples, our capacity for healthy relationships is in recovery. The arts-based activities of IndigenEYEZ spark imaginations and bring us into an equal space with others. Through play and laughter we can strengthen relationships to ourself and our communities.

Learn important tools for strength-based communication. Discover how to support social and emotional learning. Help groups come alive and develop a high level of participation. Create an atmosphere where participants take creative risks and speak from the heart.



In Spark: Session One (May 1st and 2nd) participants will learn:

  • Ways to enliven learning, deepen reflection, and develop social and emotional skills
  • Ways to create a safe space for honest and creative exploration
  • Practical models of creative process and group dynamics
  • How to build relationships across ages, professions, and sectors
  • Easy to lead arts based activities

  • Present yourself comfortably, clearly and confidently to a group

  • Create a safe space for honest expression about issues that matter
  • Tools for responding to challenging participants
