The intention of Beneath the Surface Society is to build the link between arts and culture and our youth, by providing a sense of togetherness through our collective efforts to overcome diversity, while promoting healing in our communities and families, starting with healthy children.
We prefer to call the participants of the play Ambassadors instead of actors. Mainly because while we have residencies with schools and other organizations, we have workshops with the local youth to open the conversation about compassion and understanding that there is always a story beneath the surface. But we do it with an all Aboriginal cast. Our mission is to support the creation safe spaces, support systems, and to build awareness in our youth, through fundraising, networking and community efforts.
