Ages: 11-15*

What is it: The yongunz is a program for younger youth from East Vancouver (youth from surrounding areas welcome).  We meet once a week, on Fridays. 

What do we do: We invite in different mentors from the art and culture sector (writing, photography, etc) to share their skills with us.  We have a central goal of connecting the workshop to real life outcomes, like art shows, publications, and so on. 


This group, due to space, is limited.  We are happy to take names on a list.  

                        This is not a drop in program.


  •   Some workshops will require more than two hours.
  •  We will hold a coffee house to showcase art and performances from the youth involved is the program (Date TBA).
  • All youngunz members can access other programs at the purple thistle.


Contact Sylvia for further information.
