For the majority of people a hobby is a necessary part of what it is to have a balanced life and to express the artistic in each of us. So, whether you like to paint, knit, weave, make pottery or build things with high-tech equipment, there’s a group for you.
Artistic expression plays a big part in recovery and quality of life for the clients of the Powell River Brain Injury Society. In addition to the skill set required to undertake art projects, it provides a sense of community.
