    In this sculpture-making workshop facilitated by Ottawa Art Therapy Inc, participants will take a creative journey to express and uncover the layers of their true self, what is important to them, and the parts of their world where they find connection. The participants will be working tin foil and plaster of paris to frame and sculpt their figures. This dynamic workshop offers not only artistic fulfillment but also a deeper understanding of who they are and a time to tap into their inner artist and connect with others on a similar journey. Ages 13-18.

    Whether it’s how a search engine sorts query results or how a video site decides what videos to recommend to you, algorithms have become a central part of our lives. This session will explore how our online experiences are shaped by algorithms, how those algorithms make decisions based on our personal information, and how teens can take control of their online identity and experience. For ages 13-18.

     This session is presented by Marc-Alexandre Ladouceur, Media Education Specialist at MediaSmarts, Canada's centre for digital media literacy.  

    Registration required. Registrants will receive an additional email with the Zoom link ahead of the program.
