Mother-Child Read Aloud - In this program, mothers are recorded reading aloud and the recordings and books are sent back to their children and the children’s caregiver.
Singing My Way Home - EFrySJ introduced song writing to women at NBWCC to provide opportunities for them to experience positive choices for themselves and turn negative events and feelings into something healing and meaningful. Through song writing, sharing stories, singing, laughter and tears, 4 co-facilitators/songwriters—Rachael Grant, Moon Joyce, and Mi’gmaq Gopit Clan Mothers, Cynthia and Constance Sewell—invited women to connect with others and feel a sense of empowerment and purpose. With Symphony NB, Moon and Rachael shared women’s songs and stories at a concert at NBWCC and at the Imperial Theatre in Saint John with guest singers Elder Maggie Paul and Jessica Rhaye. Music was scored by Andrew Reed Miller of SNB. The project was supported by the National Arts Council.
