It’s finally here! 150 Voices is a film collaboration by 56 young people in Salmon Arm with interviews of residents of all backgrounds, and animation sequences that celebrate Canada in its 150th year. This film will be shown at several celebratory events throughout the Shuswap, including Roots & Blues August 18 & 19. This project was generously supported by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between Shuswap Community Foundation, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast. Also sponsored by SAS Parent Advisory Council, Faster Than Light Computing, Salmar Community Association and Daybreak Rotary Club.
