Our friends at the F-You: The Forgiveness Project have a couple of key events taking place later this month that we wanted to spread awareness for.
For the last ten years, the F-You Project team has been providing events and services to communities across Toronto. One particular group – men in custody – has become a key focus when working around themes of forgiveness.
“We use art, music, pop culture and news media to create spaces of conversation around forgiveness + healing. In addition to the benefits of self-reflection, we are also partnered with the Ontario College of Art & Design to accredit young people who complete our program.”
“FYOU: The Forgiveness Project stands for. “Forgive You/Forgive Yourself”
Unfortunately F-You’s core funding is ending on Apr. 30 due to a change in provincial priorities and they’ll need a few basics to keep the programming as consistent as possible for the 500+ people who use the services regularly.
On Sunday, Apr. 28, drop in to see the letters and work from men in custody at the What’s The Biggest Mistake? Exhibit & Book Drive. Bring a softcover book, a gift card, gas cards or tokens directly contributing to the ongoing work of the jail program. It’s taking place inside F-You at 401 Richmond St., Suite 350 in Toronto. You can find more information on Facebook.
The very next day, Monday, Apr. 29, head back to F-You on Richmond St. for the Letters That Heal – A Night of Creative Expression fundraiser.
“This fundraiser is going to be a fun and powerful night to write a letter of HOPE to someone who needs it. You have to trust us that the letters will go to the right people at the right time for the purpose of bringing light to a dark space. This is PWYC to accommodate ALL who want to encourage another.”You can find more information on Eventbrite.
