The Grizzlies: Film & We Matter Presentation
Hosted by Guelph Museums
The Grizzlies is an inspiring true story based on a group of Inuit students in the small Arctic town of Kugluktuk. Suffering from widespread drug use, alcohol abuse, domestic violence and one of the highest teen suicide rates in the world, this northern community is periled by the legacy of colonialism. A group of Inuit students’ lives are transformed when they are introduced to the sport of lacrosse.
Following the film, a We Matter Ambassador of Hope will facilitate a discussion and activity to support hope, culture, and strength of Indigenous youth.
We Matter is an Indigenous youth-led and nationally registered non-profit organization committed to Indigenous youth support, hope and life promotion.
Note: there is no admission charge for this event.
This event is aimed for youth, 12 to 26 years old.
Please reserve guardian admission only for parents or guardians accompanying a youth ticket holder.
The eBar is located on the second floor and the building is fully accessible.
