For their 2019 summer project, Myths and Mirrors’ summer staff lead a series of art and poetry circles for young artists in the community to share their work. To facilitate collaboration and exchange within the group, participants were encouraged to create new works inspired by the art, music, and poetry of their peers. These circles were well-attended with 12-20 people attending each session.
The project was showcased at our end-of-summer celebration at Memorial Park, featuring performances by our summer staff, acoustic alternative rock band Kick the Clouds, the cast of Sudbury Theatre Centre’s production A Family Story, and other young artists in the community. More than 50 people attended the event, including many community members from the downtown core. See CTV Northern Ontario’s coverage of the event here.
Big thanks to our 2019 summer staff and all who performed at our end-of-summer celebration – Blaine Thornton, Quinn Zwarich, Abbey Jackson, Madison Kotyluk, Kick the Clouds, Emily Maville, Conner Lafortune, and the cast of A Family Story.
