OUR IMPACT TO DATE
SUPPORT ARTSCAN CIRCLE
what's happening today
We've had a busy start to 2019! We kicked off our programming with workshops to Attawapiskat and Gjoa Haven in February.
From April 8 - 12, we headed back to Fort Albany with Mob Bounce. Mob Bounce are two Indigenous Hip Hop artists who fuse EDM into their music with traditional and contemporary aspects. Craig is Gitxzan and Travis is Cree/Metis. Together Travis and Craig's gripping lyricism delve into spirituality, social awareness/justice, and Mother Earth connection. Their workshops are sure to inspire!
With the successful awarding of a TD MusiCounts grant, we sent 3 MacBook Laptops and 3 Weighted Keyboards with many other instruments to Attawapiskat and pianists' Terri Yu and Deborah Hui taught lessons in piano and keys. It was Lee Pham's third time in Attawapiskat with us were he handled production of the gear, photography and break dancing workshops with the participants.
Later in February we returned to Gjoa Haven with singer/songwriter Cindy Paul, also on her third trip with us and visual artists and violinist Jessamin Flynn on her second trip also. We worked with Anti-Bullying Day and the School here.
