Voices for Change 2018 Poster

The project is an opportunity for young Manitobans (ages 14-24) to explore social justice through the arts and make a difference with their voice. 

In four sessions, participants will learn about issues related to international development and the importance of gender equality, collaborate with a professional spoken word artist, record with a professional videographer, and perform in front of a live audience during International Development Week. 

We encourage those with an interest in spoken word, or related skills like drama, poetry, writing, or hip-hop, and have a passion for social justice to apply! There is no cost for participants and participants will be selected through an application process.
No previous spoken word experience is necessary! 

Working with MCIC staff and professional spoken word artists Steve Locke, participants will create a final collaborative piece that addresses gender equality. Their work will reflect how they view gender equality, why it is an important topic, and emphasize the importance and potential of youth voices! 

On February 6, 2018, participants will perform their collaborative, original piece at MCIC’s launch event for International Development Week at the Manitoba Legislative Building. 

Please note, applicants must be able to attend the following four sessions at Creative Manitoba (245 McDermot Ave, Winnipeg, MB) from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and the performance on February 6, 2018.
