Event: ‘Youth Voices of Neskantaga’ Art Exhibit, POSTPONED (Toronto)

17 06 2013

SADLY, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

SYiM (Southern Youth In Motion) recently traveled to Neskantaga First Nation, a small community of about 300 people located 480km northeast of Thunder Bay, ON. The community was in a state of crisis after the tragic suicides of two young men in less than a week. SYiM joined the community’s youth in organizing the ‘Youth Voices of Neskantaga” arts and music festival as a means of helping the community deal with the devastating loss in a positive way. Now some of the artwork has traveled south to Toronto for a very special event this Thursday, June 20th at Beit Zatoun (612 Markham St.). Read more about Neskantaga here. (Cora-Rae Silk, ArtBridges)
