ABCD (Arts-Based Community Development)
Growing out of the Arts & Health Initiative started in 2008, Arts Based Community Development (ABCD) is an ongoing series of partnerships that use the arts as a resource for service delivery. Past programs have partnered with the John Howard Society, Immigrant Welcome Centre, Family Services, the Women's Centre, Aids Vancouver Island, Stroke Recovery Association, amongst others. The programs aim to contribute positively to the economic, cultural and social development of Campbell River (i.e., its overall community "health").
