VIRTUAL YOUTH & GUEST POET PERFORMANCE!
Log in to listen to the voices of young creative geniuses and a featured guest LIVE on Instagram at 4pm!
Because of the COVID-19 crisis, our monthly First Friday workshops and performances have been temporarily suspended in favour of a virtual performance on Instagram. For those of you unfamiliar with Instagram, easy instructions are below.
This event features youth spoken word performances by young people ages 12 to 24 tell their stories in metaphor through poems written in only 3 minutes. A guest poet from the community will join the youth to provide encouragement and to promote access to the arts.
