Grand Opening – Spectrum of Valour – Art Exhibit

May 8 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm EDT

| Free

The paintings featured in this exhibit were created during the Spectrum of Valour program, by eight talented artists, all of whom are either veterans or currently serving members of the Royal Canadian Armed Forces (RCAF).

Spectrum of Valour is an art program designed for veterans and medically releasing RCAF members who have suffered a physical and/or psychological trauma. Designed by Edith Lepage Crete in 2016, the program aims to help the participants to adapt and transition toward their “new normal”, a different phase of their lives, and to provide new social opportunities. During the course, participants are encouraged to validate their feelings and express their emotions. Creativity is used by these individuals to help make sense of their world and engage in problem resolution at an emotional level.

The curriculum’s philosophy relies on the assumption that art can reach and touch certain aspects of the personality that would otherwise remain latent and consequently promotes overall wellness.
