Building Home: Saint John, NB ๐Ÿ 

May 2 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

Building Home offers a glimpse into the world of youth housing.

You are welcome to walk through house-like structures and immerse yourself in what youth from a HF4Y program have highlighted as impactful elements of their housing journeys. Youth are taking charge of their narratives and sharing what they feel is important for their communities to know about the experiences of housing precarity in Saint John. Come join us and learn more about the housing challenges that influence youth and the solutions that are available to them. This project signals the importance youth have in our city, and our commitment to build better futures for young people across the city and the province.

We are thrilled to be at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery from April 30th to May 10th. The exhibit is free and open to the public. We will be at the gallery’s Education Centre during regular opening hours.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday – 10am-5pm
Thursday – 10am-9pm
Sunday – 12-5pm

During our time at the gallery, we are also hosting some exciting events!

Creative Workshops for Youth

These workshops promote youth voice through creative expression. We begin with a tour of the installation, followed by a facilitated discussion of youth housing, and finally a chance to engage in collage art to express their thoughts. Youth are invited to add their art pieces to our virtual gallery as a way to amplify collective action.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
