Building Cultural Competency


A group of 13 ladies met yesterday @ the Space to help supporting Vita’s trip to the Philippines, building relationships and cultural competence.
The group would like to thank CNC for providing the facility to meet. I had a meeting with two ladies this morning. They provided great positive feedback and some future meeting in reporting about the trip evening and other ideas.

Mirrors Word Cloud

This word cloud was created from responses given by participants in the three Mirrors Project play workshops this month. The responses were elicited at the end of each play workshop as a closing exercise (participants were asked to say one word that described how they were feeling about what they’d experienced in the play workshop). The word cloud creates a telling visual of their responses! Thanks to all who participated.

Mirrors Project

The cast from the first two play workshops for the Mirrors Project performed at Burrard Market Square.

Some audience members from the Mirrors Project play workshop of “Prosperity” and “Language Lessons”.

The cast from the last two play workshops for the Mirrors Project performed at Saik’uz FN Band Office Gym.

Some audience members from the Mirrors Project play workshop of “To Your Health!” and “Getting an Education” at Saik’uz FN.

The actors and workshop audiences (which included attendees of the Nechako Community Arts Council’s AGM; members of the Welcoming Communities committee; and members from Saik’uz FN) joined together after the performances of original plays, “Prosperity” ,“Language Lessons”, “To Your Health!” and “Getting an Education” to discuss the realism of the struggles portrayed in the plays.   Thanks to the actors and audiences for your thoughtful participation in the play workshop process. While the subject matter was sometimes difficult, there was lots of laughter in the discussion (and even in some of the plays!).
