Students share their passions

A group of students in a special arts-focused high school program are getting set to share their passions with the rest of the community in the city’s first Ignite Guelph Youth event on April 25.
Modelled after the Ignite Guelph events, Ignite Guelph Youth will feature 16 students speaking about their passions, their community and their creativity in a series of five-minute talks and slide-show presentations.
The event, which runs from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Guelph Youth Music Centre, is one of the projects of the MADE in Guelph urban arts program. The program, running for the first time this year, offers Grade 11 students in the local public school board credits in music, art, drama and English in one integrated program.
As part of the program, students work toward planning the Ignite event, an art exhibition and a production of Romeo and Juliet.
Like the Ignite Guelph events, the students will kick off their Ignite event with a “Maker Contest” at 6 p.m. The contest is a type of icebreaker, where people will be given materials and challenged to make something that fulfills a particular function.
The talks will begin at 7 p.m., and there will be an intermission, “tasty treats,” and beverages, a news release said.
Tickets are available at The Bookshelf.
