Feature Story: Northern Spirits

Northern Spirits is a three-day music, arts, and culture workshop for approximately 75 youth ages 12-17 in northern Saskatchewan. During the workshop, youth are given the opportunity to demonstrate their musical abilities and learn valuable skills in leadership, performance, set design, stage management, and production. … “Living in isolated communities can make it difficult for youth to connect with others that have similar interests and passions. Youth who participate in Northern Spirits build friendships and support networks in the music and art community across northern Saskatchewan,” shared Johnson-Harder.
