BC Art Fest: Poetry Forum and Dance Night

We are happy to announce about upcoming Youth Engaging Youth event, which will take place on 27th of August in Surrey, and will be dedicated to Poetry, Prose and Dance. Young poets and writers will present their pieces followed by Ukrainian-Aboriginal Disco Night with Dj Kookum.
We are looking for talented youth, who would like to share their pieces with other youth.
Involving different cultures, everybody can take a participation and present their poems or prose in native language with English or French translation which will be shown on the screen. As an alternative to that, you can present some famous piece, but in a creative artistic way. You can also sing or play. However, the requirement about other language with translation into English or French will still apply. We also accept pieces in English or French only.
The purpose of this event is to show the beauty and diversity of Languages and to share Cultures through Art.
There will be three winners announced, who will get the prizes.
Are you under 30 and feel like it is about you? Don’t hesitate, register right now!

Ось і закінчилась моя робота на літо - робота над проектом Youth Engaging Youth до 150-річчя Канади. Дванадцять прекрасних заходів - чудових ініціатив різних communities в Британській Колумбії, які ми (Ukrainian Canadian Congress) підтримали завдяки уряду Канади і спромоглися організувати протягом такого короткого проміжку часу. Останній з цих заходів, "Miss Wheelchair Canada", пройшов вчора. Це був колосальний досвід нетворкінгу, роботи в команді, здобуття нових навичок (так я стала режисером, маркетологом, бухгалтером і логістом :) ) І я вдячна усім партнерам-організаторам, з якими ми разом пройшли цей шлях, перевиконавши план, а також чудовим волонтерам, завдяки яким було легше та веселіше, українській спільноті Ванкуверу, яка особливо влилася в процес, і всім-всім-всім, які тим чи іншим чином були поряд! Цей досвід був challenging, часто доводилося швидко діяти і вирішувати різні питання та проблеми. Але ми справилися! ВСІ ми. Я пишаюся, що стала частиною тієї самої, відомої на увесь світ, української діаспори, ставши членом прекрасної команди UCC. І це завершення, але ще й новий початок. А який - розкажу згодом. А поки, завітайте на наш вебсайт, подивитися, яка колосальна робота була пророблена по п'ятьох провінціях та підписуйтеся на новини: www.150.ucc.ca #YEY150 #Canada150

Today I had a fabulous meeting with James and Sean, filmmakers from Hammer & Tong. We agreed on hosting amazing #YEY150 event devoted to interaction of reality and virtual reality. A lot of creative ideas were produced during discussion of the agenda. Coming up at the end of July, don't miss a chance to look into the future ;)
