St. James Town Festival and Urban Flair Youth Talent Show 2014! 

On September 6, 2014, UforChange’s youth videographers and photographers documented the St. James Town Festival! The festivities that day included cultural performances, vendors, crafts and the “Urban Flair” youth talent show, which was presented by the St. James Town Youth Council and showcased wonderful acts such as beatboxing, belly dancing and singing from local young performers. I was fortunate to attend this event and content with capturing such superb talent, and will hopefully revisit next year with my UforChange crew!

About Campaign For Wool

The Campaign for Wool is a global endeavor initiated by its patron, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, in order to raise awareness amongst consumers about the unique, natural and sustainable benefits offered by wool. Encouraging collaboration between an international community of woolgrowers, major fashion designers, retailers, manufacturers, artisans and interior designers, the Campaign has been instrumental in educating consumers about the versatility of wool.

Since its launch in 2010, The Campaign for Wool has created new demand for wool on an international scale. Campaign efforts have resulted an outstanding threefold increase in the price farmers receive for their wool.
 
Official Canadian Wool Week sponsors are Holt Renfrew, Pink Tartan, Joe Fresh and Prince’s Charities Canada. 
 
Feel free to post this on your social networks, invite friends and hopefully will see you there!
