UnCouth – a conversation with youth

Thanks to generous funding by a local community member/artist, the raw
talents and expression of east side youth have come together for the
exciting Britannia Art Gallery exhibition, UnCouth.

Over the past six weeks, the Britannia Teen Centre has been UnCouth’s
creative hub. Youth from various nearby schools, Britannia Outreach,
Britannia Secondary, 8J9J, and Streetfront have come together once a
week to collectively work on pieces for the upcoming show in June.
Youth involved responded to the term UnCouth -- that which is uncommon,
mysterious, or awkward (among other definitions) -- through their
chosen mediums and in keeping with the messages they wanted to
communicate.
