Welcome InnerVibe is a hub of youth progressive activities designed to address arts education and youth business. The community studio offers drop-in activities, youth support and a Supper Club 5 days a week. We host a media studio for music recording, animation and graphic design. Youth have access to exhibition space and state of the art print and design equipment where they can produce products for in-store sales.
We offer space, tools and equipment for educators to train youth and weekend opportunities to train adults. Please visit our community art studio for a tour and see how we can support community.
Connecting youth with their Elders is just one of the perks to this program. Elders have experiences that all youth should have the opportunity to engage with. This program is a multi-media program that offers youth experience in video and video editing, sound recording and story writing. Youth are treated with photo and video workshops, event access to record and document. This unique opportunity allows youth to be involved with current history and ever changing growth with First Nation successes. Our goal is to have youth tell their story the way that only they can.
This program introduces youth to technology and social media development. Podcasting, archival research and a unique insight to a rich heritage, culture and language. Please register for participation. Honorariums are available for youth who fulfil tasks required for publishing. All communities are welcome to participate.
We are often asked to work on murals for personal or business. We hire youth to participate with the design, paint and implementation of these projects.
