L’Arche launches The Art of Belonging program

Belonging.  It’s a fundamental need we all share, and one of the foundational principals of L’Arche.

An international organization founded by Jean Vanier, L’Arche has a vibrant community in the Comox Valley.

All of us, regardless of our disabilities have gifts to share, and all of us enjoy expressing our gifts creatively.  To this end, L’Arche Comox Valley is launching “The Art of Belonging” program, reaching out to celebrate creativity, belonging and community.

There are three different streams to the program.  In Stream 1, artists will participate in a small community of people with and without disabilities to create art, meeting once a week.  The work created will be celebrated at an opening event and exhibition at Zocalos on April 14.  Artists and writers can also submit pieces independently. These pieces will be juried and prizes awarded at the opening event.  For more information on the program, visit the L’Arche Comox Valley website ( and click on the “Get Involved” button.
