Still Moon Youth Committee is a group of youth aged 15-22 who engage in community art, stewardship and outreach activities based on the committee’s interests. The committee members play a key role in engaging with other youth in the community around Still Moon’s values. They are active year-round, meeting monthly, and receiving support from the Eco-Arts Manager and Artistic Director. The youth gain leadership skills and get hands-on experience in community engagement and event management.
Each year, the Youth Committee helps with the Renfrew Ravine Moon Festival’s Harvest Fair, which takes place in the afternoon at Slocan Park, and marks the beginning of our signature event. The youth committee’s past activities have included organizing vendors, performers and musicians, outreach to local businesses, or leading public workshops at the fair.
Community Workshops and Events
Throughout the year, the Youth Committee organizes events of their own, with the goal of engaging both youth and members of the general public. Some of these events have included: a community barbeque, fundraisers, and various art workshops facilitated by local artists.
