Reconciliation Project

Reconciliation Project

 

This project is guided by our Indigenous Advisory Committee. It involves seven organizations working with Sarasvàti Productions to offer a creative and safe space for youth. We will be using an artistic lens for Winnipeg’s Indigenous youth to examine how they interact with the world around them and how the world in turn interacts with them. This collaboration will bring together youth and elders, various artists and a broad audience over two phases.

Book your ticket for Seven Visions, our public launch and presentation. There are four opportunities to participate from May 4-9, 2019.

Ultimately, this is just the starting point for the project. From June to November, workshops will take place at partner organizations. Using storytelling, youth will share their experiences in different art forms. Then in May 2020 a full public performance of the resulting work will take place. As a true community collaboration, the final performance will come directly from the youth. The results and lessons learned from the project will also have a long-term impact with changes to Sarasvàti’s practices moving forward.

We are grateful to the Winnipeg Foundation for their support of this initiative.
