Breakthrough: We Can! Arts Fest 2014
With a focus on youth, Breakthrough will feature young artists, performers, youth groups and students, all coming together to showcase their original art, share personal stories, and start critical discussions on gender stereotypes, stigma and the different forms of violence that affect youth in our society.
The festival will use the powerful medium of art, performance and conversation to challenge the expectations and pressures that youth face in their peer groups because of their gender, spark ideas for change and celebrate a youth culture that is inclusive, supportive and safe for everyone. Speak up, take a stand and break the box with us. This event is created by the youth, for the youth, so take a stand against violence with us!
Date: 6 December 2014
Time: 11am – 8pm
