Funded by the Toronto Urban Health Fund
imagineNATIVE in partnership with the Native Youth Sexual Health Network, and in association with Charles Street Video and the Liaison of Independent Filmmaker’s of Toronto - with funding provided by the Toronto Urban Health Fund - invited Indigenous youth ages 18-26 to participate in a series of workshops and trainings that explored indigenous sexual health, gender & sexuality, and film/media making (film, video, web-content).
Participants were supported with access to information, gear, elders, and mentors to assist in production of a new video work or short film.
All completed work by the participating Artists will be presented on a loop at the Bachir/Yerex Presentation Space in the 401 Richmond building (which is also the site of our exhibitions).
