Seeing Red: Young People’s Stories for the Eyes, From the Heart
On Saturday, February 27, 2016 from 5:00 pm to 1:00 am at the Atwater Library (1200 Atwater Ave)
Except for school hallways, kids don’t usually have the chance to share their thoughts and experiences, expressed creatively. In Seeing Red, twenty-one Montrealers aged 6-11 create stories and transform them into digital art that comes from their hearts.
Working with three Montreal authors (Raquel Rivera, Marie-Louise Gay, and Greg Santos) and with new media facilitators ( Nicola Sibthorpe, Nina Pariser, Viola-Rose Day and Eric Craven) youth at the Atwater Library and at the Pointe St-Charles YMCA created these works of poem and story-based video and animation.
Part of the Atwater Writers Exhibition (AWE), a multiformat celebration of English-Quebec writing, with support from the Community Cultural Action Fund, Department of Canadian Heritage.
