Influencers Motivating Influencers toured Canada’s Arctic in April and May featuring world renowned magician Brian Glow and his anti-bullying and wellness magic show. The illusionist performed for K to 12 students during the day and then presented a community show in the evenings at various Arctic locations. All events were free.
The interactive magic shows delighted audiences in Yellowknife, Cambridge Bay, Gjoa Haven, Rankin Inlet, Iqaluit, Grise Fiord, Pond Inlet, Arctic Bay, Resolute Bay, Pangnirtung and Clyde River.
The We Matter Campaign was also brought to the schools as part of the program. It is an online campaign that promotes Aboriginal and Inuit Leadership, and healthy living. www.wemattercampaign.org
First Air and Calm Air sponsored 100 per cent of the air travel for the tour. Proceeds from the Iqaluit show went to the Nunavut Kamatsiaqtut Helpline, available 24/7 at 1 800 265-3333.
This August and September Brian Glow is planning on returning to Cambridge Bay, Gjoa Haven, Taloyoak, Kugaaruk, and Kugluktuk. To have Glow and his team visit and perform in your Hamlet, email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
