In The New Gen's design workshop, featuring Larissa the winner of the Stuck At Prom competition, we discuss various topics concerning the design process and how it was involved in creating Larissa's duct tape dress. She explored how the Folklorico style used in Spanish and Indigenous designs inspired her work. Throughout the workshop Larissa answers many questions coming from both The New Gen team and the audience about her cultural inspiration, advice for young creatives and much more!

the northern youth art display 

By: Meilun Yu


In April 2023, The New Gen collaborated with 5 young artists from Yukon, The Northwest Territories, and Nunavut to ship their original artwork to be displayed in Valley Art gallery's historical Mckay House for a week. Over 20 pieces of art was showcased, with a focus on Inuit and Indigenous artwork. From paintings to beadwork to rubber engraved stamps, The New Gen was able to display a wide variety of media, and aimed to elevate the voices of underrepresented youth communities in the Canadian North. Our event was featured on OMNI News as well as the Markham Economist and Sun.
