CLAWS: Creating a Legion of Aboriginal talent Who get to show their Stories
This workshop will be a mini-introductory to a weekly work-shopping course that is set to take place beginning in the Fall of 2011. This FREE 10 month course is primarily set up for Aboriginal Youth (ages 13-18) who are interested in acting for film and television.
For mispon on November 20th, 2010 beginning at 9:00 to 10:30 Dawn will be giving an introduction to this great initiative. Followed by Dawn and as part of this workshop, mispon welcomes Gabriel Yahyahkeekoot, Cree filmmaker artist and filmmaker-poet, to facilitate a workshop called Guerilla Filmmaking/Special Effects & Interactive CinePoem Workshop at 10:30 to 12:00. This work shop is located at the Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative at 301-1822 Scarth Street.

FYI- However, there will be occasional “alternate” workshops lined up for the youth that express interest in other fields, such as directing, writing, music, photography and many more. (Every participant will be asked to fill out a survey indicating where their interest lies and those students will get an opportunity to learn about this particular interest sometime throughout the 10 month program.
