CULTURE, OPPORTUNITY AND INSPIRATION
We are honoured to host Gathering Our Voices Indigenous Youth Training event on the traditional territory of Musqueam First Nations. From March 20-23, 2018 GOV will bring together more than 1,000 Indigenous youth delegates as well as chaperones, presenters and guests to Richmond, BC. Young people from all across Canada are invited to join us to explore, to learn and to engage with our culture among peers.
Youth, chaperones, presenters, exhibitors, Elders, volunteers and other guests will have the opportunity to make new connections, rekindle old bonds, engage their passions and discover a new drive. How can we improve the present? How can we create a brighter future for ourselves? Are we prepared to face the upcoming challenges?
Join us and learn from pillars of our community, hear their stories, their struggles, and their triumphs. Then, forge your own way by creating your own special blend of workshops, it is your choice what you learn, just as it is your future. Spend your evenings participating in our live Talent Showcase and dance party. Finally, reconnect to your roots during our cultural morning and closing ceremonies.
