Apology

Unfortunately, the Crescent Heights Indigenous Walking Tours are cancelled. The Crescent Heights Community Association left Many Chief Tours out of a key planning decision for the Crescent Heights Indigenous Walking Tours and did not have a written agreement in place. We apologize for our mistake. We apologize to Many Chief Tours and those who were signed up for the tours for the missed opportunities that our mistake has caused. Our volunteers are learning from this mistake and will be introducing agreements with service providers going forward. Please note, Many Chief Tours provides other Indigenous Walking Tours in Calgary and we encourage you to visit https://www.manychieftours.com/.

Join your neighbours in an interactive four-part art expression workshop – come for one night or all four!  This workshop is a fun, whimsical expressive art workshop focused on neighbourliness, belonging, and imagining what kind of neighbourhood you wish to live in. Expressive Art Facilitator, Leslie Ortlieb, will be supporting participants through this four-week activity focused on the theme of belonging. All you will need are common supplies found around your house (It’s time to use your imagination). We’ll be creating and using masks as the medium to express yourself. No experience needed, just a longing for creativity.

Leslie Ortlieb is from Blackbird Arts Healing Collective and she is a current Masters of Counselling Psychology student. Her skill of facilitation and passion for art needs to be experienced.
