We will also be sharing more about A Youth Explosion & what it is like to be part of it
A Youth Explosion(AYE), is an artistic storytelling event where Indigenous youth share their wisdom with a diverse public audience through a wide variety of mediums including spoken word, art, dance, music, and film, and other creative storytelling expressions.
In preparation for this event, performers take part in facilitated workshops to craft their wisdom story with the support of mentors, professional artists, Elders & the BILT. The process is designed to support deep self-reflection, while building the confidence of participants to express themselves and exploring the many diverse artistic disciplines.
We are excited to collaborate with mentors, professional artists & storytellers in the Treaty 7 community to support youth & young adult storytellers/performers/presenters as they develop their wisdom story. A big thank you to Buffalo Stone Woman & Conroy Obey, Eagle Song Consulting (Mentor, Motivational Speaker) for helping us begin the journey on the land!
