North Battleford will be the only stop in Saskatchewan for the Confederation Centre of the Arts’ cross-country tour where unique artistic workshops celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday.
The provincial stop is next week, on Feb. 23, where youth in the Battlefords are invited to take part in a dreamcatcher workshop. There, youth aged 11-15 will have the opportunity to create a small dreamcatcher, as well as participate in drama games and other artistic activities.
The Confederation Centre of the Arts has partnered with the Battlefords Boys and Girl Club to put on the event.
“The goal is to encourage youth, through artistic mediums, to think about their future, their choices and how they can make a difference,” said Stephanie Ripley, associate producer at the Confederation Centre of the Arts. “We want them to dream big for the future. We strongly believe that our lives, country and world will be a better place if we empower and encourage our young people whenever possible.”
