Engage Your ART!

Big day today!   Engage Your Art!

Founders Engage is being launched to showcase activities, deliver inspirational music and talks, to empower teens to look for ways that they can use their arts, academics and sports backgrounds to build community, build resiliency and promote positive change.

The concert on Saturday May 6th, 2017 will be accompanied by the official launch of our website, foundersengage.ca.  The website will continue to evolve and become a space to highlight student community philanthropy, activism and creative endeavours that challenge existing stereotypes, progress dialogues of positive change, and bring awareness to how their actions can have a positive impact and encourage others to follow suit.

Join us this afternoon in the ESA Library.

  • 5:30pm – Meet and Greet and Light Refreshments
  • 6:30pm – Concert and Inspirational Voices
