The Agnes is delighted to announce that we have received a generous contribution from the Community Foundation for Kingston & Area to support our project: Listening to Our Communities: Storytelling through the Arts. This project addresses the need to directly listen, respond, and provide creative resources to our immediate communities in Katarokwi/Kingston areas, most especially Indigenous youth. In partnership with Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre, the Agnes will facilitate a series of after-school artmaking sessions for Indigenous youth to the tell their stories and engage with artist mentors through the lens of Kent Monkman’s exhibition: Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience.
