The First Voices group will perform in a showcase of indigenous artists from around the world. The performers are Atlantic Canadian and International Indigenous youth who have come together over the past four years in a project called First Voices.  The project brings together Atlantic Canadian Indigenous Youth together with Youth from the South through the arts to foster cooperation and understanding.  Every year has seen a different artistic focus: dance, music, video and multimedia. This year, all participants are coming together in Halifax to meet, share stories and to inspire us with their performances.
