Culture is Healing is a monthly event by and for Indigenous youth to come together to share our culture and have great discussions about things like holistic well-being, harm reduction, sexuality, sexual health, HIV, and Hep C. This is a gender affirming space, and we welcome Indigenous youth with all identities to join us for Culture is Healing.
For the month of July we will be doing mask making! The masks above were made by our Elder Val for an art show. Each mask has a different story and a different expression. We will provide all art supplies as well as dinner. If you have any dietary restrictions, in need of child care of bus tickets please e-mail me.
This is a free event for all self-identified Indigenous people between the ages of 14 - 29!
Youth of all sexualities, genders, abilities are welcome to join us.
We are able to provide bus tickets at the event, and may be able to get bus tickets to you before the event if needed. Please let us know.
Our space is on the second floor, and there is an elevator available. We have two all gender washrooms, one of which has wheelchair accessibility.
On site childcare is available upon request. Please let us know if you would like childcare, and the age(s) of any children you are bringing.
This is a scent-reduced event. We do smudge and use medicine that can have scent. Please give us as much notice as possible if smudging or medicine use may aggravate scent sensitivities.
