Renovations are underway at 7arts

The next phase of renovations began at the 7arts building at the end of February. Volunteers and Board members were busy filling, priming and painting the walls, then we had contractors in to install our brand new floors. The space is looking sparkling and new with more and more added to it as we go. Come on out to check out our beautifully renovated space and the many new programs that we have to offer.

What’s new at 7Arts?

January and half of February has flown right by and we’ve been busy. We successfully kicked off our Wellness Wednesday Program with Bell Let’s Talk on January 29th. Thanks to the generosity of Bell Aliant at Greenwood Mall, we were able to invite some guests from Beacon House to our Makers Space that afternoon for arts and crafts.

Wellness Wednesday continues each week at the Makers Space. We invite seniors and adults to drop in during the mornings for some arts and crafts. Groups are also welcome to book the space Wednesday afternoons, we can even offer facilitators for Art and craft workshops upon request. We will also offer some health and wellness services in the space thanks to some visiting local practitioners including Wellness 180 and so much more. Please be sure to check out our calendar here and our Facebook page for ongoing events.
