On June 2, 3, 4, 2016, WoodGreen Community Services in partnership with the GTA Rites of Passage Advisory Circle and the National Rites of Passage Institute, will be hosting the 2016 Rites of Passage Youth Symposium called “the Indaba”.
The Indaba, meaning “gathering” in the Xhosa language, is an interactive gathering for young people of Afrikan heritage to gain insight and knowledge as they embark on the process of maturation, in doing so they seek to reclaim their identities.
The Indaba will be interactive utilizing a range of technological tools, media, and artforms from:
- Spoken word
- Visual art
- Digital walls
- Digital media and dance …
… to engage delegates as they explore the four questions of Rite of Passage.
