Peer Support Round Table:
Join us every Wednesday on Zoom from 1:30-2:15 PM to meet with peers, make new friends, and chat about topics and ideas that mean a lot to you! This is also a great space to brainstorm on some new ideas for the Centre.
Virtual Movie Night:
Grab some popcorn and get comfy, Movie Nights are here! Every third Friday of the month, we get together over Zoom to watch a movie of everyone’s choosing. A poll will be sent out at the beginning of the week to allow people to vote on their top choice.
Come join us for afternoons of artistic expression though many different kinds of art. With different art projects each month, you’ll get to experience all kinds of creative ways of expressing yourself. Plus, you get to do it all for free! Make friends and stunning pieces with our Creative Expressions Workshop. Take your art home to keep or leave it at OILRC and see it go up on the wall or around the office!
