Residents of Dawson Creek are invited to reflect and connect at the world premiere screening of a brand-new documentary film: People 4 Peace.

On June 7, filmmaker Tryna Gower will premiere her documentary People 4 Peace, funded in the TELUS STORYHIVE Indigenous Storyteller Edition.

This curated screening opens the first-ever Peace Arts Festival, which spotlights and celebrates local artists reflecting on their paths to peace. 

Attendees can look forward to art displays from the subjects of the film, live music from Indigenous earthy folk artist Lorissa Scriven and a Q&A with the creatives behind the project following the screening. 

"I am excited to gather community members of all nations and backgrounds to provoke curiosity about different paths to internal peace, regardless of background or culture. We are all walking each other home to self-awareness and peace,” says Gower, reflecting on what excites her about sharing this project with the community.

Catch People 4 Peace on Friday, June 7 at 6:30 p.m. at the Kiwanis Performing Arts Centre in Dawson Creek. A minimum donation of $4 is required.

About the film: People 4 Peace is a short multicultural documentary film featuring four artists from Treaty 8 Territory and their paths to internal peace. For peace on the outside, we must find and connect with the peace that naturally exists inside us. Once we have insight to our own peace, then we can proactively build peace collectively.

People 4 Peace was funded in the TELUS STORYHIVE Indigenous Storyteller Edition and will premiere on TELUS Optik TV and STORYHIVE's YouTube channel later in 2024.
