Art for Healing

+Social Change

The Art for Healing and Social Change program has been developed to create opportunities for socially engaged art projects, exhibitions, artist talks, workshops, outreach programs and art therapy. This program has a specifically strong intergenerational focus, considering ways in which knowledge, experiences, stories as well as artistic and cultural practices are passed through generations, within communities, and across distances and time periods.

What's happening at Button Factory Arts:

This winter The Letter Writing Project continues at Button Factory Arts in Partnership with Madawaska Library. New programs include:​​


  • Condolences "Letter Writing for the End of the World" (workshop)

  • Mindfulness and Painting (FULL)

  • Cyanotype & Stitching (workshop) In partnership with University of Waterloo (FULL)

Connect to programs with our partners:

Opportunities are available for those who are a part of communities at our partnering locations including: The Working Centre "Green Door Art Space" and Sexual Assault Support Centre. Through artistic collaboration, we have continued to provide unique programs within each of these communities tailored to, and in direct response to the specific needs and interests of each organization. Thank you to the Government of Canada for generously supporting this program.
