CREATE AND CONNECT: AN ARTS-BASED WELLNESS PROGRAM AT TRINITY COLLEGE
Create & Connect provides a variety of arts-based experiences that help students develop their self-awareness, recognize their strengths, and cultivate a sense of autonomy and agency over their holistic well-being. Each 90 minute event is led by two facilitators and designed to help students de-stress while engaging with others and the arts to support their social, emotional, spiritual and intellectual wellbeing. Sessions draw on experiential learning theory, mindfulness and research on student development and wellbeing. Art forms include narrative writing, visual art, poetry and improv.
Located in the front hall of St. Hilda’s College, the Abbott Room is a space dedicated to the health and wellness of the Trinity student community. The fall 2023 Abbott Rom schedule will be posted in early September.
