About Resilient Hearts:
“Resilient Hearts is a community-driven art project fueled by the strengths and stories of people in Thunder Bay.

Through inclusive arts programming, participants in under-represented neighbourhoods of Thunder Bay will explore and self-define topics related to sexual violence including: Resilience/Strength, Healthy Relationships, Boundaries, and Self-care.

These definitions will become the roots of artist-run community workshops with each neighbourhood. Art workshops will include (but are not limited to): visual art, spoken/written word, illustration, poetry, photography, DIY culture (zine-making), and storytelling.

Creations will be compiled into the Resilient Hearts Book, to be published in March 2017.

Community Partners: Evergreen a United Neighbourhood, Faye Peterson House, Community Action Group, Thunder Bay & Area Victim Services.
