Due to COVID-19, our Fiddle Workshops are still not able to take place. We hope all of our students and friends continue to stay safe & healthy and we are hopeful to start our visits again during the 2021-2022 school year.

ver the course of the 13 years that TSA has been supporting Nunavut youth, we have been able to expand our fiddle workshops from visiting one community once per year, to visiting 5-6 communities during each trip, three times per year and working with more than 300 students. In 2019, we facilitated our first-ever After School Music Club and we look forward to expanding those clubs soon (stay tuned!). Our program aims not only to provide Inuit youth with music instruction (especially in communities where music programs don't exist), as a positive, creative outlet, but our program continues to deliver valuable skills that translate into increased self-worth, joy, positive engagement with others, increased confidence and positive mental health.
1,199 individual youth participated in fiddle workshops (many returning year after year).

THE IMPACT OF MUSIC IN POND INLET
Thank you to RYOT and to David Darg & Bryn Mooser for traveling to Pond Inlet in 2014 to capture this video. We look forward to many more years to come and to being able to reach more youth in other communities across Nunavut.
