Mark your date on Saturday, January 18th. RSVP here.
I recently started a partnership with the Casandra London Network (CLN) for their youth program at the Jane-Finch area. I will be guest facilitating or performing or making a cameo (you know the last one is a joke).
The CLN is a community driven initiative fusing together the art of theatre and journalism for diverse youth ages 19-28 making social and political differences in marginalized areas. Over the course of five months from January to May, eight to ten youth will learn how to collectively create a play, produce an online video news report, and develop an event to showcase their work in the community.
Don’t miss out this free program if you like spoken word or want to tell the world your stories. Come out to the info session on January 18th and shoot us with questions. RSVP link is here.
The CLN is also hiring Youth Assistant, Photographer, Graphic Designer and Videographer!View Fullscreen
A side story that you might want to know, I met the lead of the CLN, Casandra London the very first time at Daniels Spectrum when she was a journalist from SNAP North York; then I attended her media literacy workshop at Arts for Children & Youth and learned a lot from her; then we figured both of us attended Art of Facilitation workshop at NIA Centre where she was there a year before me; then I saw her again and again almost everywhere in the arts world.
Kinda amazing and real, isn’t it? I will see you on January 18th!
