Here For Now vol. 3

It is an honour to present these three exceptional artists, and we are thrilled to be able to do so in partnership with our wonderful venue, Slice of Life.
Below you will find information about the 3 new works you will see this evening, and below that, some links to the organizations mentioned in the opening speech, should you like to donate or learn more about these important Indigenous-led initiatives.
