DISS - AN INTERACTIVE PRESENTATION FOR GRADES 7-12 ON THE RISKS IN CHOOSING WHERE YOU BELONG
TOURING MARCH 22 – APRIL 16
Why is gang life so appealing?
Follow one youth’s journey from the beginnings of a childhood friendship, through the development of a neighbourhood gang and demise of a close friend.
Created in collaboration with youth who have experienced gang violence, the plot covers snitching, family relationships, friendship, theft, gun violence and many other issues that affect youth living with gang culture in their communities.
Developed in partnership with youth, the Toronto Police Service and support from the Toronto District School Board, this 2009 project focuses on gang presence in our neighbourhoods and the pressures youth face finding social connection and identity.
