Taking Action! Part 1 Communities

We have held Taking Action! Workshops with the urban Aboriginal community in Toronto, Ontario (October 2008), Kettle and Stony Point First Nation & Aamjiwnaang First Nation in southwestern Ontario (February 2009), Kahnawake First Nation just outside of Montreal, Quebec (May 2009), Nak’azdli First Nation in northwestern British Columbia (October 2009), Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island (May 2010), and Puvirnituq in Nunavik (October 2010).

In each of these communities, our local youth coordinators did an amazing job planning a weekend workshop with the youth in their community. During these workshops, youth learn about HIV by working in small groups with trained artists on projects like music, video, photography, hip hop, and other art forms, discussing their artwork with the other participants in the project, and, on the last day of the workshop, presenting their artwork to their community.
