Top Story: Impacting Canadian Society Through the Arts

L’Arche Comox Valley’s Outreach and Creative Arts Centre is a one-stop community hub that produces beautiful candles, jewellery, and visual art, while building relationships and community. It includes special programming for local seniors, drawing older, isolated adults out to eat together and share stories. The program has been forced to move several times on a quest for an elusive low-rent facility that would have enough space (think wheelchairs, art easels) and the right kind of space (think dripping wax, splattering paint). Meanwhile, the community was renting office space in another building, and running Jubilee House, the residence that was the heart of L’Arche in the Comox Valley.
