Rediscovering the Rhythm and Rhyme in our lives and the lives of our students

We all have the ability to be songwriters. In this interactive session of singing, music-making and story-telling, singer/songwriter Mimi O’Bonsawin will help participants explore the importance of music in their lives to open up a new language for wellness and well-being.

Participants will gain an appreciation for the value of offering our students the opportunity to become attuned to the « music » in their own lives and be open to creating spaces in our schools and communities for artistic exploration and expression at all ages.

“Often, we intellectualize our conversations around wellness, wrapping them in words, phrases and terminology. In the same way, our responses to issues of wellness and mental health tend to ignore the power and importance the Arts – music in my case – to provide different ways of knowing and expressing ourselves.” – Mimi O’Bonsawin
