Outside Looking In: May-June 2016
Outside Looking In offers a high school accredited dance program providing the opportunity to Indigenous youth and their communities to engage in long-term intensive education through dance. Should youth fulfill the academic and attendance requirements of the program, youth get the opportunity to join other Indigenous youth from across Canada for two weeks in Toronto, preparing for an ultimate performance on stage to show off their talents and abilities before hundreds at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts.
I first volunteered for their main performance in 2011, but was asked to return as Assistant Producer in 2016. I was tasked with managing the logistics of the event, including the inventory and finances. I was also responsible for handling the 40+ volunteers on the day-of.
