Bullying, friends and the struggle to fit in were topics explored by youth in Fort Smith last week during a workshop focused on self-expression through the performing arts.

‘What’s Your Story?’, a workshop for youth organized by Reneltta Arluk of Akpik Theatre, was back in the Northwest Territories for a second round of creative empowerment workshops with youth aged 11 to 17, joined again by singer Renee Benson of New Jersey and, for the first time, dancer Alex Twin of Alberta.

Using storytelling, acting, song and dance, the youth worked on expressing their own stories at a final performance at Uncle Gabe’s Friendship Centre on Saturday night.
