Workshop: Epoch Youth Project (Vancouver)
“Youth ages 14-23 are invited to join the Epoch Youth Project, a multi-disciplinary, collaborative performance creation process and workshop. The project combines contemporary dance, theatre, film, writing, visual art, music and crafts to explore themes related to the environment. With the mentorship of professional artists Kelly McInnes, Sophie Wolfe and Laura Avery, youth participants are invited to experience the artistic process involved in the creation of performance.
Goals of the workshop are for participants to gain skills in communication and collaboration in an artist setting, to take creative risks using imagination and embodiment, to build a sense of community and to explore important issue within our society. The project creates a space where youth feel empowered to share their stories and perspectives. In addition to the in studio creation process, there will be performance opportunities throughout the season, which allows the participants to build upon their developing collaborative and creation skills and to share their work is necessary!
The project is free of charge and snacks are provided. No experience is necessary!
Epoch Youth Project’s next session taking place January 9th-March 13, 2019. The project runs Wednesdays 530-730pm at Kensington Community Centre. It is free of cost and snacks are provided each session. There will be performance opportunities in the spring to conclude the season.”
