L’Arche Toronto Sol Express was founded on intuition – a ‘gut’ feeling that the message of L’Arche had places to go. This same spirit of adventure and risk, and the conviction that all people have something to offer became the momentum that has manifested in the creative arts program of L’Arche Toronto, Sol Express.
Sol Express joins together the movement, voice, music, art, theatre, and dance of individuals with developmental disabilities into creative expressions on themes such as hope and belonging.
Formed by and rooted in the values of the L’Arche Toronto Community, the mission of the Creative Arts Program is:
To provide opportunities for individuals with intellectual disabilities to explore & share their gifts and stories through creative expression.
To explore and reflect on the human condition through inclusion and the need for community.
To influence people in how they respond to the gifts and challenges of difference.
