Manitoba Youth Centre Workshops

From Summer 2006 to Spring 2007 Crossing Communities conducted a series of workshops with youth incarcerated in the Manitoba Youth Centre. The workshops included multi-media poster making, photography and photocopy transfer and painting workshops. The mentors for these projects were Pat Aylesworth, Alison Davis, Dominique Rey and Jackie Traverse.

In August 2006 the posters produced in the Manitoba Youth Centre workshops along with posters made by youth from Ndinawe Youth Resource Centre during workshops at Crossing Communities were exhibited at the Crossing Communities Studio as an installation that included a sound piece of the youth's voices talking about their artworks and their lives.
