The Grizzlies Hope Ambassador Community Screenings

Indigenous Film, The Grizzlies, We Matter, Youth

November 15, 2019

Earlier this fall The Inspirit Foundation, Hello Cool World and Drawing Wisdom contributed copies of The Grizzlies Educational DVD’s to The We Matter Campaign. With this donation, they were able to provide the film to over 40 We Matter Ambassadors of Hope, who are all Indigenous youth ages 16-26, who come from every province and territory in Canada.

All through this Winter, the ambassadors will be hosting community screenings and facilitating discussions within their home communities and territories to share messages of hope, culture and strength.

The Grizzlies very own Anna Lambe who plays Spring, gives a powerful message in the We Matter Campaign’s #HopePact video. Learn more on how to take a pledge. 

Hello Cool World and Drawing Wisdom are honoured that We Matter and the youth ambassadors will incorporate The Grizzlies into their practice. Together we are creating screening Toolkits, that include a discussion guide from the We Matter team to safely and effectively facilitate a post-screening discussion that is youth and community-focused. Drawing Wisdom is happy to work with We Matter and commends these Hope Ambassadors as they inspire their peers and break cycles of suicide and mental health stigma to create a positive healthy impact.
