Reconciliation comes alive through music, dance, theatre and visual art! Join Sarasvàti Productions for this unique experience that shares the stories of over 70 Indigenous youth and their view of reconciliation.
Beginning in early 2019, seven local organizations partnered with Sarasvàti Productions and guest artists to offer a creative and supportive space for Indigenous youth. Through these workshops, over 70 youth examined the theme of reconciliation. Sharing stories about how they interact with the world around them and how the world in turn interacts with them.
Now, a team of professional artists has compiled the art and stories the youth have offered into a unique piece of theatre, presented outdoors with social distancing.
Please join us in the spirit of Reconciliation and support the voices and stories of Winnipeg’s Indigenous youth!
