Stay Home Music Activities

Stay Home Music Activities

At a time when we're all being asked to Stay Home, I'm sending good vibes in the form of music activities for you and the people you are staying home with. Whether you are looking to have some fun or need activities for your kids, I've compiled these links for you. Most of these activities refer to groups of people, but the activities work equally as well with 2-5 people, roughly the number of people in one household. Adapt by reducing the number of parts, and putting one person to a part.


FUTURES/forward is a National Mentorship Program in Community-Engaged Arts for Social Change (ASC) in Association with Environmental Organizations Across Canada!

→ Are you an early to mid-career community-engaged artist who would benefit from the support of a senior ASC artist? Are you passionate about climate justice?

→ Are you a seasoned community-engaged artist interested in sharing your gifts of experience and wisdom with those newer to the field?
