The Labrador Creative Arts Festival, founded in 1975, as a celebration of the arts created by and for Labradorians. This Festival upholds two main principles:
1. there is an expressed need for young people resident in Labrador, be they Innu, Inuit, Metis or resident, to know their past and their role in the developing Labrador community, in order to aid them in becoming active in the preservation of their heritage, as well as to become arbiters of their future.
2. to provide individuals with an opportunity to come together and share their creative experiences because of the geographic and social diversity within Labrador, and thus become aware of the varied and composite life styles in Labrador.
I had been living in the Happy Valley area for four years and always heard about it so I decided to go in 2004. It was a great experience. I had been involved in a lot of political type issues and didn't realize the power of listening to deep social issues through the words of teenagers.
Some of the topics where drugs in remote communities, broken families and so on.
The students learn self-expression, self-confidence and social interaction skills as well as developing a keener aesthetic sense and critical thinking skills.
