Invitation: Energy Matters Creative Workshops

As part of Alberta Ecotrust Foundation’s work in the area of energy poverty, we are working with our Artist in Residence, Shumaila Hemani, to explore energy poverty through artistic practice. We are so excited to invite you to Shumaila Hemani’s workshop series: Energy Matters. These series of three workshops aim to create a dialogue about energy accessibility.  

As a person who cares deeply about energy affordability and is eager to find more creative ways to make a change in your community, we invite you to become part of a collaborative process that harnesses the power of art to move others to action toward energy justice. In these fun and engaging workshops, you will have an opportunity to step back and explore how energy relates to you, your community, and your vision for the future.
