Inuit Youth Arts Workshops
AKP Project Since 2015
AKP helps a world-renowned artist bring the gifts of art and music—and hope—to Arctic youth
World-famous harmonica player Mike Stevens was struck by the plight of young people in isolated Inuit communities during his first visit in 2000. With limited options for social activities and a lack of promising career opportunities, the youth of the Arctic region of Canada too often fall prey to harmful lifestyles and self-destructive behavior.
Through AKP-supported arts workshops, Mike and his team bring musical instruments and art supplies to these communities and teach at-risk youth how to express themselves through the arts, in the process exposing young people to ways they can change their lives.
