Nike Away Kids Barcelona Shirt 2016 Yellow 2015 News

July 2018: Thanks to the success and impact of our 2017 Lullaby Project, as well as an outpouring of generosity from our benefit attendees, we are thrilled to announce that we are able to run the second iteration of our project. Again, again in partnership with the YWCA, we will start working with a group of diverse new mothers on July 11th. Stay tuned as this project evolves. And in case you missed it, here's last year's FRONT PAGE Vancouver Sun story about our program: Blue Energie CARTER Blue Energie Grey Energie Grey CARTER BPTqxwg0P

February 2018:
On January 31st, at the intersection of Main & Hastings, nearly 300 Instruments of Change supporters, friends and artists joined us to celebrate our co-creative activities in community.  And as they became co-creators themselves, they mingled their words on screen with clever limericks and poems; they moved their bodies to stimulate Ninth Node's incredible installation piece; they enthusiastically brought their hands together for our amazing roster of mash-up performances; and they reached into their hearts and pockets to raise a whopping $70,000 for our programs. So, as usual, we are left humbled and enormously grateful.  And we look forward to keeping you posted about all of the artful activities we will continue thanks to your support.

They were nothing more than people, by themselves…
but all together, they have become the heart and
Away 2016 Shirt Yellow Barcelona 2015 Nike Kids
muscles and mind of something perilous and new,
something strange and growing and great.
Together, all together, they are the instruments of change.
