January is here and it’s a bright new year! Be sure to visit Idea Exchange and explore all of the exciting programs and events planned to kick off the new year. Read on for a few highlights happening this month.

The start of a new year is always a great time to reflect and set the tone for the year ahead. To help you find your inner zen, Idea Exchange is offering a Mahasati (Benjue) Meditation program with experienced instructor Di. Join us on Sundays, January 15 to February 26 from 1:30 – 3:00pm at Queen’s Square and explore this mindful meditation which uses movement of the body to generate self-awareness. All are welcome to discover the immense benefits of meditation!

Cold got you feeling blue? Warm up with some laughter! Join spoken work artist Barb Day and hip-hop emcee and spoken word poet Rafay Ansari at the Brant Rant Roadshow on Sunday, January 15 from 3:00 – 4:00pm at Queen’s Square. Barb’s quirky new work and Rafay’s impressive talent are sure to heat things up and put a smile on your face!

Want to dive into tech this year? We’ve got you covered with our introductory electronics course Build an A-Line Robot on Tuesdays, January 17 to March 7 from 6:30 – 8:00pm at Hespeler. Our experienced instructor Calin Raszga (B.E.Sc.) is excited to guide you through an introduction to DC motors, batteries and more while you build your very own robot. Register now and get your robot ready to roll!

Back by popular demand, our Night Out series returns with Pints and Printmaking! Gather some friends and head to Queen’s Square on Thursday, January 26 from 7:00 – 9:00pm for a night of creativity. Here’s how it works: we provided the printmaking supplies – and beer (or wine) – and you get a unique and fun evening with friends! Our friendly instructor guides you through each step of creating your own print. Cheers to good times with great friends!

Believe it or not, we’re just getting started! Discover the full January calendar of Idea Exchange programs and events here.
