A message from the General Manager
SNAC is excited to welcome its newest tenant, The Seine River School Division and its alternative high school program! Since October 2014, the SSRD has been renting the SNAC gallery Monday to Friday, and hosting meetings and trainings for educators from the division.
Starting in February 2015, the division launched a new school program in the main floor space. Coordinated by the St. Norbert Collegiate, the pilot program offers a small group of high school students working with teacher Melinda a unique schooling experience in SNAC's historical and natural setting. The program is expected to expand in the fall of 2015. SNAC is excited to share this great space with the community and host enriched educational opportunities in St. Norbert.
Other tenants at SNAC continue to grow their programs and event: Sanctuary is in its 7th year at SNAC, meeting every Thursday night at 7:30 to meditate with healing sounds, and hosting fabulous meditative concerts on the solstices and equinoxes. Darci Adam offers expressive arts therapy in her offices on the second floor, and where artists Carmella Wade and Indra Skuja-Grislis also have art studios.
