After two and a half years of online program delivery, we are happy to introduce a new hybrid model, which will continue to provide participants with the flexibility of taking some of the workshops from home, but will add the much-needed face-to-face interactions between participants and facilitators.  

For more information on the program schedule, please attend an information session or contact us.

If you have any accessibility needs, please contact us to discuss accommodation.
