In September 2014, the Michaëlle Jean Foundation and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia launched the 4th Wall: Justice, Art and Youth exhibition, which tells invisible stories related to justice and youth in Nova Scotia. Artists between the ages of 15 and 30 are given a chance to have their voices heard in the largest art museum in Atlantic Canada. The exhibition is on view through January 25, 2015.
Youth Art Connection, a collaborative community partner for this exhibition, is hosting an event on January 24, from 1-3pm, in the 4th Wall exhibition space. Please join us for a short presentation and public dialogue, with an intergenerational panel of professional writers, poets and hip hop artists. They are using the power of the written and spoken word to address justice-related issues in Nova Scotia and tell stories that too often go unheard.
Where: Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, 1723 Hollis Street, Halifax
When: Saturday January 24th, 1-3pm
Who: All are welcome to view the exhibition, and listen and engage with the panelists.
Panelists will include Rebecca Thomas (spoken word artist), Chris Benjamin (author), Shevy Price (hip hop artist), Jon Tattrie (author), Rebecca Moore (artist and public speaker), Savvy Simon (public speaker, activist, entrepreneur), and Alyssa Flint (spoken word artist).
