Myths and Mirrors Community Arts is starting off the new year with Waking Light, a free arts project for youth ages 12 and older that combines puppetry, performance, media arts and more. 

The project launches Thursday, Jan. 11 and continues for 11 weeks, culminating with a free community celebration of the March equinox and the return of the light on March 20.

“We know Sudbury winters are long so we’re really excited to be able to offer youth this opportunity to get out of the house, socialize, and explore their creativity,” says project co-ordinator, Cora-Rae Silk, in a press release.

“Through weekly workshops, we’ll be exploring a wide range of mediums so we think there will be a little something for everyone. 

“Plus, being able to celebrate and share this work with the broader community is something we’re really looking forward to.”

The first workshop for Waking Light takes place from 6-8 p.m. Jan. 11 at 139 Durham Street (upstairs) and will continue every Thursday leading up to March 20.
