Société Umbellus

Umbellus offers self-development retreats for artists and cultural workers. Umbellus is a Canadian chartered non-profit organization with two types of residency for artists.  Purpose: To provide a self-development stay for artists and cultural workers, so as to optimize or maintain their well-being and creativity.  Participants: Participants are of all age groups, from anywhere in B.C. and Canada and other countries who need respite from their cycle of negotiating contracts, producing art work and distributing it.  Outcomes: Concrete tools to deal with the pressures of a precarious lifestyle; to have the necessary strengths to remain true to themselves; and to play a positive role in society.
