With the far-reaching effects of today’s snowstorm causing snow days across Ontario, the DAREarts Nee-Tum-Ochi-Bek / First Roots team is feeling the love despite the cold weather up north in Marten Falls First Nation (Ogoki Post). Having safely arrived yesterday to begin work with students at Henry Coaster Memorial School, DAREarts artists-as-teachers Cathy Elliott and Linda Carson have met with the incredible staff at the school who have shared their support for the project.
Below is a letter that Cathy has passed along to the DAREarts office, with words of encouragement shared by Henry Coaster Memorial School’s principal, Louise Bailey:
Thank you, Louise, for your support and for sharing the love! Stay tuned for more updates as Cathy and Linda are joined by b-boy artist Lee Pham, who will work with the kids to help them find their inner potential.
