Life Transitions


This programming stream will be appealing to both newcomers to, and veterans of, the world of arts and culture. These sessions will help you discover or renew your commitment to the arts and culture through such themes as the discovery and beauty of theatre, the primordial significance of music in our lives and the social impact of great novels in history. These workshops are held in collaboration with established artists as well as with cultural centers of importance.


This programming stream invites you to engage in a critical understanding of the world we live in. Sessions demystify social issues and bring forward new lenses with which to envision social participation.


The life transitions programming stream considers the life-transforming challenges we are all likely to experience. Benchmarks such as planning retirement, or dealing with the death of a loved one, are not only intense and difficult occurrences to live through; they are also commonalties in the human experience. The sessions in this stream propose ways to make sense of these experiential shifts in navigating the trials of our lives.
