Guelph Museums hosts film screening and We Matter discussion at The eBar during the March Break

GUELPH, March 4, 2020: Guelph Museums will present a viewing of the film The Grizzlies at The eBar  Wednesday, March 18, 1 p.m.

The Grizzlies is an inspiring true story about a group of Inuit students in the small Arctic town of Kugluktuk. Suffering from widespread drug use, alcohol abuse, domestic violence and one of the highest teen suicide rates in the world, this northern community is periled by the legacy of colonialism. A group of Inuit students’ lives are transformed when they are introduced to the sport of lacrosse.

Following the film, a We Matter Ambassador of Hope will facilitate a discussion and activity to support hope, culture and strength of Indigenous youth. We Matter is an Indigenous youth-led and nationally registered non-profit organization committed to Indigenous youth support, hope and life promotion.

Light refreshments will be provided.

This event is aimed for all youth, 12 to 26 years old.

Tickets are free and are available in advance at guelphmuseums.ca.

The eBar is located at 37 Quebec Street, on the second floor. The building is physically accessible.
