ABOUT US

"Rockstar Kids" is a program for Indigenous school aged youth. The program was designed to ignite a sense of cultural pride, provide tools for healing and deliver a spectrum of possibilities through the arts.

 

Combining music, dance and art, incorporating traditional teachings and creating an outlet where youth are encouraged to use their voice, are some examples of the driving force behind “Rockstar Kids.”

​At this vital time, it is important that we honor our youth and hear their voices. In creating a safe space, sharing our stories, and nurturing artistic abilities, we hope to instill confidence, build self esteem and offer an outlet for creative expression.

We believe that art is a powerful and necessary form of healthcare that not all youth living in rural communities get to experience. By combining forces with multidimensional artists, and offering a full production, we hope to bring communities together in a positive way and celebrate the gifts the creator gave us.

2020 UPDATE

As we move into phase two of reopening the economy, we want to ensure you about everything we are doing to keep communities safe following the COVID pandemic.

  • Our team will self quarantine seven days prior to the departure of any booking

  • We will travel by car rather than air whenever possible

  • Our staff will be following all recommended safety measures before, during an after the program and will be monitoring ourselves daily

  • We will hold workshops outside whenever possible

  • Constant cleaning measures will be implemented before and between every workshop

  • We will limit classroom capacity to six students per workshop to ensure proper social distancing

  • All participants will wear masks inside during the program and facilitators will wear a face shield

  • We will be filming the performances over two separate days and will create a concert video to share on our Facebook Page, YouTube Page and website so community members can watch and share instead of our usual "Community Feast & Concert"

  • We will still have a "Meet & Greet" on our final day with merchandise available for sale but mandatory hand sanitizing and social distancing in the lineup will be required
