Please join us..and spread the word!
‘Hear the Whisper’
Please join us at 6.45pm May 21st 2015 at the Rebellion Gallery, 1495 Gerrard Street East at Coxwell and Gerrard.
This evening aims to play a role in dissolving the stigma around Mental Health and also shed light on the pathways to Well being.
All the Grade 7 and 8 students of Room 205 at the Duke of Connaught P.S. have contributed art pieces to this vibrant exhibit. They have been inspired by the urban graffiti splashed on walls and also the art works of Jean Michel Basquiat and the powerful messages that these send to the world.
We will be sharing personal and creative stories from our Anthology of Short Stories that will be on sale and we will be facilitating mediations and inviting us into moments of stillness as a collective.
All proceeds will go to the Child Mental Health Ontario society in the memory of Chazz Petrella whose life we honour and remember this evening. (Please see the moving CBC Fifth Estate documentary ‘The boy who should have lived’). We are grateful to have Chazz’s artwork for sale and exhibited and people from the Coburg community where Chazz lived. We are also remembering Shane Clench’s life and we are honored that his father will attend our event!
We will be serving a selection of appetizers and deserts as prepared by our catering team.
