Want to learn what goes into developing a program that will really serve the community?Facilitated by Patrick De Belen, this virtual workshop will equip participants with the tools to design a strong community program.

We’ll also explore best practices for risk management and making sure your program is accessible whether it’s in-person or online.This workshop is presented by ArtReach, Arts Unite, and Artscape Daniels Launchpad. About the Facilitator:Patrick De Belen  -  Toronto-based Filipino spoken word poet, performer, speaker, host and educator is one whose formidable acclaim as a performance artist and writer is equaled by his commitment to his community, and his status as an enduring source of insight, energy and mentorship for young poets across North America. As a performer, Patrick has garnered praise and admiration for his ability to blend sharp social commentary with an exhaustless wit, charm and creative candour. This combination of talents has made him a national slam champion, as he was at the 2012 Canadian Festival of Spoken Word, and a performer of note on such platforms as CBC, TED Talk, NEXE and others. He is also the first ever recipient of the Spoken Word Poet of Honour award at YouthCanSlam–Canada’s national youth poetry festival, an award he won on the basis of his dual talents as a poet of remarkable ability and an educator of enduring devotion, passion and intelligence.Notes:This workshop is intended for youth 13-29ASL interpretation will be available, as well as closed captioning.This session will be recorded and made available to registered participantsSpaces are limited, so register early!
