Upcoming Art Show - Call for Submissions!

7th Gen is putting out a call for submissions for Aboriginal youth to display their work at the Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs' Open House April 20th.

This is a great chance to gain exposure and there is high potential to sell your piece, or a print of your piece.  Aboriginal Affairs also hosted our previous EXPRESSU show last March and it was a big hit.

This year the show is for two hours, but we need to prep and design it according to the pieces submitted.

Hawk Logo

Onelight Theatre is looking for 2 male and 2 female actors for the roles in Hawk or How He Plays His Song, a new production written and directed by Shahin Sayadi. The characters are Aboriginal (Mi'kmaq) men and women in their early to mid 20s.

The work schedule for this project includes: a workshop in Winnipeg, May 3-10, 2011, a second workshop in Halifax, Summer 2011 (dates TBD) and rehearsals/production in Halifax, Spring 2012 (dates TBD).

Ideally, interested actors will be available for the entire project, but we will consider applications from people who may not be able to attend the first workshop (May 2011).

Media Nights: EXPRESSU II

Last year's EXPRESSU show was such a hit (thank you ArtREACH Toronto!) that we decided to hold another one for those who missed it last year, courtesy of Native Child & Family Services of Toronto (NCFST).

EXPRESSU II will have a similar format, and requires Aboriginal youth participants (ages 16-29) to sign a project agreement to take part.

The official sign-up is happening tonight from 6:30-8PM at 30 College St.! If you are unable to make it, and if we still have additional spots, you can make alternate arrangements to sign up and learn about the coming schedule.

Media nights will still be open for youth wanting to learn about the process, but the project itself will be reserved for those who have signed up and not done the project last year.

See you then!  For access to 30 College after 6PM please call 647-258-8301 EXT 3507 (it will be posted on the door).  Refreshments are provided.
