Project Sing!(Spryfeild) Supported by the Youth Secretariat of NS, this program ran sessions in spring 2011 at the Captain William Spry Centre. It was a wonderful journey with co-facilitator Ann Denny. We took the youth through exercises is song writing, rapping, performance and introduced them to a new style of music each week. Youth from age 12-17 were engaged in this program for an 8 week period, with weekly end of session performances from each youth.
We then took Project Sing! to the north end of Halifax. Here, (with the help of the 4C’s foundation) we brought together the seniors walking club, and the Hope Blooms youth gardening entrepreneurs. Through this program we explored everything from knitting and crocheting to hip hop dance and costume design.
