Program Overview

ArtLife is FCAC’s participant-led arts program for people with disability. Participant-led means the participating artists drive the direction of the program.

Join us weekly to learn new skills, express yourself, create new work and be part of the community. Have your work and ideas seen and heard!

Workshops are run by professional artists who facilitate the space based on the interests and needs of the group. Artistic activities include:

  • Visual arts
  • Animation
  • Dance
  • Ceramics
  • Printmaking
  • Digital arts
  • Culinary arts, and more!

ArtLife program also includes residencies and mentorship.
