We invited non-urban youth from Grey-Bruce region and beyond to learn from upcoming and seasoned arts professionals in a series of weekly workshops and then to take their turn at creating a digital storytelling project!
Their contributions (including original songwriting and illustrations) were developed for the project "Release the Fire Within" as a choose-your-own-adventure through videos on YouTube. We invite you to explore the stories of Legend and Joku, the participant-created avatars as they come face-to-face with a formidable force.
The first video of our adventure can be found here:
Along with more information about the studio and the coordinating team!
We will also be hosting an online Town Hall as our next event with a panel discussion on creating art and preventing burnout, as well as the drastic changes our industry has undergone and the effect that the pandemic has had on community arts.
Please register for the event here, and feel free to share as you may!
