Health and Wellness Week at NSCAD

From April 19-22, 2022, join us for Health and Wellness Week at NSCAD University, where several events are being planned to help students unwind after a busy semester. We will have prizes, giveaways, and refreshments!

Events line-up:

Date: April 19, 2022
Location: D230, Fountain Campus

Details:
Come relieve some of that end-of-term stress by visiting with a therapy dog team from St. John’s Ambulance.

Registration is not required for this event.

Note: The therapy dog team will be located in D230 so that those who may not wish to be around a dog can avoid the area. The therapy dog team will enter the building from Duke Street and take the elevator shortly before the scheduled time.

Date: April 21, 2022
Location: Second floor presentation area, Port Campus

Register here.

Details: This workshop is designed to teach you methods to root your creative process in your physical experiences. We will
practice body awareness and mindfulness of the senses as ways to channel artistic creation. You will learn a meditative movement exercise and a seated mindfulness practice for relaxing your mind, connecting with your body, and tapping into vivid sensory experience.

Bring a sketchbook, notepad, a ball of clay, or anything you can use to put down ideas.

Refreshments will be available!
