Moberly Arts & Cultural Centre (MACC) is a community arts centre that provides a space for intercultural connections, a gathering place for the community and an opportunity for everyone to experience and participate in the arts. At MACC, we believe that the arts enrich and strengthen community life.
Check out below some of our new Spring 2023 programs starting in April!
Moberly Writers and Storytellers: Stone Soup (50+ yrs)
Led by Johnny Trinh, Stone Soup is a community-focused project that will create a feast of stories and food. Participants will be encouraged to share stories, memories, and recipes that will be put together into a community cookbook anthology. Each month there will be guest artists, cooking lessons led by guest chefs and the participants, building up to a grand feast open to everyone.
April 11-June 6
Social Stitching: Sew, Make, Recycle (18+ yrs)
Do you have “stuff” you keep because of the memories things hold for you? Come and spend some social time hand stitching a special container for your memories. No special skills needed. We have lots of cloth and hand sewing supplies to share. If you like, bring some small objects to work with – family photos, small souvenirs, special pieces of cloth or other objects that have personal meaning for you.
April 12 -June 14
Children’s Taiko Drumming (5-10 yrs)
Basics of taiko drumming geared for children. Rhythm training, team building, confidence growing within a world music context. We will learn some taiko songs on Japanese taiko drums made for children.
Sundays, 10:00am – 10:45am
April 9-June 11
Following your Gut (12+ yrs)
Moberly Medicine Garden is a native medicinal plant garden that also grows a wealth of cultural foods from Indian, Asian, and Caribbean lands. We’ll take a plant walk to learn the cultural foods growing in the garden, and their use in different communities. We’ll learn digestive herbs that support discernment, self knowledge, and embodiment. We will cover calendula, chamomile, and mint, and make digestive bitters. As always, work in the garden will follow the workshop.
Saturday, April 1, 12pm – 4pm
Moberly Garden ProgramsSpring Flowers – Gardening with the Moon Phases II
You don’t have to be an astronomer to test your green thumb with moon-phase gardening. Even the more complicated structure of a bio dynamic method is as easy as working with a daily calendar. Share some time in the garden: learn from the flowers, offer your reciprocity, listen to the birds, and plant some flowers.
Sunday, April 30, 11am-2pm
