What’s our goal?
To provide a space for youth ages 18-24 residing in BC to come together, network and talk about the different forms of activism that they are engaging in within their communities. Our conference focuses on grass-roots activism in the form of visual arts. A large component of this conference will introduce you to a variety of projects that other Indigenous people are doing and give you a chance to strengthen your skills in the are-as of media, film making, public speaking, web development, tools to deal with racism and much more! . An important piece of this conference is leadership. Activism and leadership go hand in hand, you will have the opportunity to focus on developing a vision and direction for the leader you want to be in your community.
