Finding the Balance Between Two Worlds: Youth Conference

Date: April 11 & 12, 2017
Location: Hugh Sutherland School, Carstairs, AB, Canada

 

 

Each school completed a week-long residency with Trickster Theatre to create a show with their own focus on the theme of "Finding the Balance Between Two Worlds". Then, they each brought 25 students to the conference to share that work and create new work in groups made up of students from each of the three schools.

 

 

Highlights from the 2017 Finding the Balance Between Two Worlds conference. 

 

 

Since 2012 we have been working with the theme - Finding the Balance Between Two Worlds. This theme looks at all aspects of FNMI life in order to integrate the past to create a strong present and future.  In 2017, we will continue to explore this theme as we focus on how all cultures in Canada share the land and honour the treaties at the "Finding the Balance Between Two Worlds Youth Conference”.

 

The schools that are participating in the conference are: Hugh Sutherland, Chief Jacob Bearspaw, and Matthew Halton. Prior to the conference each school will work with Trickster Theatre for a week to create an original show on the theme. A group of 25 students from each school will then perform sections of each show at the conference before creating new work in groups mixed with students from each school.
