Creative Recovery Network and CQRASN present:

Disaster Ready Regions Creative Recovery Training

As part of the Shine Bright Festival

Creative Recovery Training is being offered to grow your skills and connect you into a wide network of community facilitators. Participation will enable you to be better equipped to support your community in difficult times.

At the end of this training, you will:

  • Understand the way trauma impacts on our communities and how best to plan and present support programs.
  • Have a planning framework to support community project planning and facilitation.
  • Have resources and skills to support community project development within a disaster context.
  • Be connected to like-minded people.

This training opportunity is being facilitated by Scotia Monkivitch from the Creative Recovery Network.


 Creative Recovery Network is a national agency that advocates for the role of arts and culture within disaster management. We are a growing network of artists working with our communities as we prepare, respond and recover from disasters. The Creative Recovery Network was established in response to the growing recognition of the value of the arts in preparing for and recovering from disaster. Creative Recovery Network proactively ensures that culture and arts are the bedrock structure around which we connect, learn and grow, enabling the arts to play a deep, real role in supporting disaster resilience and connections amongst communities and individuals.
