Beyond the Bars Exhibition and Art Sale Help in Formation of Lending Library

Posted 14/04/03 in NEWS

Beyond the Bars was exhibited at the Woodland Cultural Centre from July 26 – October 13, 2013.  This exhibition organized by summer student Carley Gallant saw the successful sale of sixty - sales of works of art, including over a hundred prints. The proceeds from these sales were used to further support arts programming at the Woodland Cultural Centre, as well as in the purchasing of culturally relevant materials. Aboriginal Legal Services of Toronto’s Gladue Caseworker, Lisa M. VanEvery, carefully selected appropriate literature through Goodminds.ca.  These books have now been dedicated towards the creation of a lending library to serve three correctional facilities.  These facilities include the Brantford Jail, Hamilton Wentworth Detention Centre, and Sprucedale Youth Facility.
