We are so excited to be having our first kick-off night this month!

What to expect: Meet your peers, rundown of the Creative Native project, dinner & more!

Youth will come together to get to know each other, start working together as a team and designing their Creative Native show! We will have a short presentation at the beginning which parents are welcome to attend.

If you haven’t signed up for Creative Native, head on over to our Get Involved page!

Created by award winning singer/song-writer Buffy Sainte-Marie, Creative Native is all about giving youth the opportunity to explore the field of creative arts and live production. By providing professional mentorship, the project offers an exciting learning experience and support to explore a future working within the arts. Youth will have the chance to design and produce a live show on their own home turf. Starting with community consultation and relationship building, professional mentors will collaborate with youth to plan a weekend which spotlights their creativity.

Timeline:
- Our first night for youth to come together will be Wednesday July 24th, 6:30pm at Dajoh
- Youth will then have weekly workshops Wednesdays 6:00 - 8:00pm at Dajoh where they will get to learn about all aspects of live production including lighting design, costumes, sound design etc.
- Youth will plan and design their own show to take place at the Gathering Place
- In November, Youth will put on their show for the community with singer/song-writer Buffy Sainte-Marie opening for them
