Its finally here!
YWCA Peterborough, Victoria and Haliburton presents
NOURISH PETERBOROUGH: A CELEBRATION OF COMMUNITY, FOOD SECURITY AND SOCIAL JUSTICE
at the newly renovated
Market Hall of Performing Arts (140 Charlotte Street)
Wednesday April 13th, 2011
starting at 6:00 pm, and ending at 9:00 pm
Come out for an evening of local food, music, theater and documentary film! Dinner provided by Food Not Bombs and Come Cook with Us. Enjoy a community meal to the sounds of Newmarket based traditional folk musician Roseanne Speckert, and Toronto based folk/indie artist Abigail Lapell. Local legend Gillian Turnham presents her all new theatrical performance exploring the themes of frontier, seeds, development and fertile spaces. The evening will conclude with a presentation of the much anticipated Nourish Peterborough, a documentary film that follows ten unique community groups from Peterborough who are advocating for food security and sovereignty. These are programs that have a substantial influence on many people’s lives, though many of them go overlooked and/or underfunded. Nourish Peterborough provides a platform for these organizations, giving members, participants, volunteers and staff, a louder voice in our community. This is community member Emily Blondin-Doan’s first film.
