January 25, 2017 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Come experience an interactive art exhibit, a Youth-produced short film, spoken word performance, photography and more.
Through the exhibited artwork produced by youth in and from care, you will gain a greater awareness of the lived experience these young people face in their daily lives, as well as some solutions to challenges they have identified.
In the past year, organizations supported by the Fostering Change Initiative of the Vancouver Foundation, supported multiple art-based youth engagement projects with youth in and from government care. These projects aimed to:
- Empower Youth voice through Art
- Explore Change through Art
- Uphold the Youth’s right to have their voices heard
On January 25th we bring these projects together and invite you, the community, to celebrate the voices of youth and honour their right to influence the decisions that effect their lives.
Please join us in recognizing and celebrating their work.
Light refreshments will be provided.
