WHO WE ARE
Creative Praxis is an art-based, healing-centered, joy-filled training organization for youth, educators, and community members working towards liberation. We are facilitating a shift towards a liberation approach to education, community engagement, and youth work.
Our methodology is grounded in 6 educational humanistic approaches for the cultivation of liberation in both theory and in practice. The 6 approaches (Community Building, Art Infusion, Anti-racist Education, Restorative Practices, Trauma-Informed, and Ethos) work in tandem in every training or workshop to provide a holistic learning experience.
This experience moves participants towards individual transformation while examining the ways in which they engage with their communities and the systems at work in our society.

CONNECTION AND BELONGING
Community is defined as a group of two or more people who, regardless of their backgrounds, have been able to accept and transcend to live in their complete humanity. Experiential in nature, Community Building is an adventure in human interaction based on anti-racist decolonizing principles and processes rather than an agenda or particular procedure.
