Performing Arts & Queer Justice Camp

Performing Arts & Queer Justice Camp

The  camp brings together youth and artists (one from the NWT and another from elsewhere in Canada) to talk about queer social justice issues and channel that passion into creating art that they will share on the Folk on the Rocks stage. This camp was started to give youth a way of expressing themselves and spreading a message.

Join us for a free performing arts and queer social justice camp where you will be able to express yourself through music, singing, spoken word and storytelling!
