Darkspark helps youth create social change through music

Arts, Culture & Heritage

Darkspark is an initiative that facilitates collaborations between musicians and youth in communities across Canada to give youth a voice and build bridges across cultural divides. Its Four Directions project led to the release of the Four Directions Project, Vol. 1 EP (listen on Spotify and Apple Music) on December 6, 2019, which includes lead single “Follow”, recorded by Grade 7 and 8 students at David Livingstone Community School in Winnipeg.

The Winnipeg Foundation’s BeCause Radio spoke with Darkspark educator and photographer Sage Nokomis Wright to learn more about the Four Directions Project:
