Myths & Mirrors Community Arts
Bwaajigiwin (Boo-wad-jig-e-win – “the practice of dreaming”) is a revitalization of Myths and Mirrors’ Kazzzam stilt-walking troupe and offers Sudbury youth (14+) a chance to explore performing arts through puppetry, mask-making, costume design, and stilt-walking. Participants have the opportunity to perform at various festivals and events throughout the summer, including: Earth Day Festival, National Aboriginal Day, Canada Day at Bell Park, Northern Lights Festival Boréal, Up Here Festival, and more. Myths & Mirrors will also be coordinating stage painters, who will paint alongside festival stages, inspired by the music and ‘that festival feeling’.
In 1996, Myths and Mirrors found its beginnings in two of Sudbury’s oldest neighbourhoods – the Donovan and the Flour Mill. Since then, Myths and Mirrors has been engaging Sudbury’s diverse communities in collaborative art-making, story-sharing, and community-building.
By providing the tools, resources, and support for communities to express themselves creatively, Myths and Mirrors educates and promotes public participation in the arts. Through exploration of modern myths and reflecting on their own perceptions and experiences, participants develop a voice to challenge assumptions, redefine arts and culture, and help transform our collective futures. Everyone is welcome.
