“Refuge” Explores Freedom as a Practice 

The Guelph Black Heritage Society, in partnership with Immigrant Services– Guelph Wellington, and the International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation bring you “Refuge,” a 12-week program for immigrant youth and youth of colour

10:00 a. m. to 2:00 p. m., Saturdays starting February 20th until May21st get inspired by the stories of hope and perseverance from freedom-seekers on the Underground Railroad, and create an event that explores what practicing freedom means for us today.

Workshop sessions at GCVI (155 Paisley St., Guelph). Rehearsals and final performance at Heritage Hall (83 Essex St., Guelph).

Guest facilitators Mosa McNeilly, Brent Rowan, Joni NehRita, and Truth Is… join lead facilitator Kevin Sutton in building ‘freedom’ skills and expertise in a team of youth, and fostering a Guelph legacy of being a refuge for today’s freedom-seekers from around the world.

Generously funded by the Guelph Community Foundation
