A Street Art / Window Painting Workshop

A workshop of the Creative Catalyst Series

Our shared visual landscape is dominated by advertisements and street signs. Join London-based community artist Stef Turner in bringing some colour into your home and onto your street, making your mark on the collective consciousness. In this workshop you’ll join people all around the world in spreading the word, the feeling, and the idea of hope through individual window paintings. Stef will also introduce an approach to facilitated dialogue inspired by Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone’s “Active Hope” cycle. The goals of this workshop are to expand your creativity, explore your inner landscape, and connect with others through visual arts and reflection.

9am Seattle / Vancouver | 11am Bogota | 12pm Toronto | 1pm Rio de Janeiro | 5pm London | 6pm Cape Town | 9:30pm Bangalore

Visit a time zone conversion clock to determine the start time in your area.

For this workshop, you will need:

  • paint pens (aka chalk pens) OR some light coloured tissue paper, paper, pens, markers or crayons
  • a quiet space with limited distractions
  • a PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android device with camera, speakers, and microphone
  • a good internet connection (call in will not be available)
  • power for your device to ensure that it lasts for 90 minutes
  • to have Zoom downloaded and updated to version 5.0 on your device before the workshop (See our ZOOM TIPS below)

We welcome you to join the workshop 5 minutes prior to the scheduled start time so that you can get oriented and ready to participate when the meeting starts. Please be aware that the workshop will be closed to new participants 5 minutes after the session starts.

Much of this workshop will take place doing activities in breakout rooms in 5-10 minute increments, between which we will all return to the main session. Please plan to stay online during breakout groups (and, ideally for the whole workshop!) as leaving a breakout group could disrupt the activities.


The Creative Catalyst Workshops got its start thanks to a grant from the Garneau Nicon Family Foundation in Seattle, as well as support from participants like you. To ensure continued equal access to this training opportunity, we have established a Sliding Scale registration fee structure in which you choose an amount that aligns with your level of privilege or systemic barriers. The actual cost per person is $15.00 USD; no refunds.

The Creative Catalyst Series brings the practice of creative expression to you wherever you are in the world.


This workshop will take place in a private and secure PYE Zoom room.
