“I do!” is a youth initiative that is part of the project Alliance of Multicultural Agencies Against Forced Marriages in Canada at Agincourt Community Services Association. It seeks to create awareness about forced marriage among young women through art workshops and to film the workshops for making a documentary.
We have completed the first art workshop which involved young people (13 - 18 years of age) creating posters about what they learned. You can read about that workshop on our blog at http://amfmcanada.ca/project-blog/.
Currently, we are seeking 20 young women (18 - 24 years of age) for our next workshop which will teach them the techniques of Spoken Word and how to express their views about forced marriage using this art. It will be held on Mondays and Tuesdays from July 23rd to August 14th at Chester Le Community Corner.
For more information please see the attached flyer.
