Scratch & Mix Project Empowering Black Youth Through the Arts: Exhibit at the AGO

Scratch & Mix Project Empowering Black Youth Through the Arts

Across the GTA (Halton, Peel, York, Durham and Toronto), black youths are leading grassroots initiatives that use the arts to tackle serious issues that affect them. Spoken word, dance, animation, painting, graffiti, photography and video art are but some of the mediums young people are leveraging to effect change. Unfortunately, their drive to make a difference is often overlooked by the wider public, as are the specific challenges they confront.

COME TO THE PIECE OF MINE FESTIVAL!

On Saturday, May 2nd from 5 - 8:30PM, York United Black Student Alliance and PIECE OF MINE Festival present a reading of the play Other Side of the Game by Amanda Parris. The play explores the idea of being ride-or-die as a phenomenon that has transcended time, where loyalty is not only devoted to intimate partners but also to families, friends, communities and even to political movements; recognizing that though the recipient may change, the patterns of self-effacement are consistently applied.
 
This new draft will showcase a gifted, all-female cast.
