Join us for an opportunity to leave behind your worries and take your wishes beyond the present!

Kids are still dreaming of a future post-pandemic… Almost a year after premiering this participatory project on the Kipnes Lantern, our commission for the National Arts Centre – English Theatre’s series Grand Acts of Great Hope will be remounted at the Harbourfront Centre as part of JUNIOR (May 21-23 2022).

Wishes in the Wind is a soulful parade that captures the struggles and resilience of children. Carrying rocks emblazoned with words of worry and waving flags with declarations of hope, young people offer us a glimpse into their hearts as they wish their way through this challenging time. Join us for this two-part experience where kids will be engaged in a workshop to make their flags and rocks and then parade around the Harbourfront Centre campus.
