We have two exciting teen focused programs on the schedule. Join us for free presentations aimed at teens or register to join our workshop hosted by the Arts Lab!
Free Teen Sessions
10:15 - 11:45 Conference Centre, Piper's Lagoon Lobby
10:15 ~ 10:45 Roundtable Discussion
David Alexander Robertson and Scott Henderson's graphic novels deal with some tough stuff such as the smallpox epidemic of 1870, and the residential school system of the 20th century and its legacy, as well as celebrating some of the great Indigenous figures from Canadian history - some who are well known and others who deserve to be part of history.
They will be talking about their process in the Pipers Lagoon Lobby, Conference Centre from 10.15 to just before 11.00 on Saturday May 12th – a little bit of a roundtable discussion for any teens that are interested – and it’s free!! Please come and join us.
