In our 25th year, World Community is holding our Annual General Meeting on Thursday, June 25 at 7pm at Creekside Commons, Courtenay.

Everyone is welcome.  Refreshments will be served. FMI:  250 337-5412

We’re excited to present the premiere screening of Ed Carswell’s new short film 24 Hour Drum (35 min.). First Nations youth from the Sea to Sky School District make powerful presentations, including original poetry, to middle and high schools to raise awareness about what it means to be Aboriginal. Filmmaker Ed Carswell will be in attendance. This is a very timely film in the context of the recent release of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s recommendations and upcoming full report. Special guest Kristy Gibson-Bell will share plans for Walking With Our Sisters, the memorial to missing and murdered aboriginal women coming to Comox July 31 – August 15.
