Video: Faces of the North (ArtsCan Circle)

“Music video by youth in Attawapiskat.

ArtsCan Circle is proud to present Faces of the North a song and music video written, composed and performed by Indigenous youth in Attawapiskat, Ontario. Attawapiskat is a community of many different people, with many different experiences. The voices of youth are often the last to be heard, and yet may be the most important voices for the future of Indigenous Communities. Our ArtsCan Team of Filmmaker, Brendan Mariani, B Boy Dance Instructor/Producer, Lee Pham and Indigenous Singer/Songwriter, Mimi O’Bonsawin, worked together to create an incredibly powerful song and video, that captured the hearts and minds of the students of Vezina Secondary School in Attawapiskat.

This is the beauty and power of collaborative art projects that use a multi-disciplinary approach to create works of art that are informative, educational and emotionally powerful. For the youth, it is a way for them to express their feelings and experiences in a way that is lasting and impactful. This video will give you a snapshot of life in the north and hopefully encourage you to learn more about the wonderful, resilient young people who are working hard to find their way in the world.”

Video: Art as a Tool for Social Change (ArtBridges/ToileDesArts, previously posted)

 

(Previously posted) ArtBridges/ToileDesArts is proud to present Art as a Tool for Social Change, a video directed by Emily Laliberté (Funambules Médias) focusing on the impact of community arts and arts for social change and on ArtBridges’ role.

In the making of this second of three ArtBridges’ videos, we looked to Québec and particularly the city of Montréal to celebrate and shed light on some of the most powerful, transformative and inspiring community-engaged arts and arts for social change projects going on in Canada now.

We asked Emily Laliberté from Funambule Médias, if she would be willing to work on this project with us and create a short film that would highlight three community arts initiatives in Montréal and showcase their actions and impact on the ground. Each organization would then share about their experience with ArtBridges and on the importance of being part of a Canada-wide network.

We would like to thank very deeply Emily Laliberté, and all the wonderful teams at Funambules Médias, Exeko, La Société Elizabeth Fry du Québec and Art Entr’Elles for the amazing work that they do and for making this video possible.

Enjoy the video and don’t hesitate to share it! Let’s spread the word about the magic of art for social change!

– Catherine Lamaison, Francophone Community Arts Coordinator, ArtBridges.

As part of a three-year grant, ArtBridges received funds from the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation to create three videos that raise awareness on the nature, value and impact of community-engaged arts and arts for social change in Canada, and about ArtBridges’ involvement and mandate.

Today! Live stream of an award-winning interactive forum theatre play about consent and sexual violence (Sheatre)

“Thanks to FAR FROM THE HEART, students around the world will engage in conversations about consent and sexual assault through interactive theatre.
Change the action. Stop the violence.

In the age of #MeToo, the live stream of an award-winning interactive forum theatre play about consent and sexual violence could not be more timely or important. Sheatre’s Far From the Heart / Loin du Coeur will close out its 31-show tour of Canadian schools with two live streams, the first in English and the other in French, on Friday, November 9th. The production will be performed before a live audience in Owen Sound, Ontario, while inviting for the first time students around the world to participate at sheatre.com.

Audience members have the opportunity to step into action and change the outcome of the scenarios performed on stage. A chat window will allow online viewers to post comments and suggest interventions to be played out by the actors. As a result, students get a rehearsal for reality, learning through theatre how to resolve conflicts, negotiate relationships, and avoid risk. A half-hour discussion with professional counsellors from local community groups will immediately follow each show.
