The 19th Birthday Party installation is going on tour! Our first stop is at the beautiful new Surrey City Hall in October.

Here is the EventBrite invitation.

The invitation details:

Join us for an evening to honour the experiences of Surrey youth aging out of government care.
This year, 59 youth will age out of government care in Surrey. Many face challenges in areas such as homelessness, employment and mental health. Surrey youth in care are also resilient and have positive plans for the future.
The 19th Birthday Party is an art installation that explores experiences relating to youth transitioning out of government care at age 19. Come learn about some of the work that community members of Surrey have been engaging in to address the challenges these young people face.
 
The 19th Birthday Party Exhibit
Reception: Thursday Oct. 6, 5 – 7pm
Exhibition runs Oct. 4 – 7 from 8:30-4:30pm
Surrey City Hall Atrium
Interactive art, music, speakers and refreshments. Open to all.
The event is free, but we would welcome donations. Donations will be used by youth organizations in Surrey to create transition packages for youth aging out of care. Suggested donation of $10 (cash at the door), or gift certificates to grocery stores or Guilford Mall.
Can’t make it to the reception? Don’t worry, the exhibit runs from Oct. 4 – 7 from 8:30 – 4:30 at Surrey City Hall Atrium.
