"Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent."- Victor Hugo. The Fête de la Musique, also known as World Music Day, is a music festival taking place on June 21, the summer solstice. Music is the sound of a society, of a time and a place. It articulates the ideas and emotions that "cannot remain silent." This refusal to remain silent is why music has so much social power. To celebrate world music day, we invite you to explore the connection between music and social change.
Global Dignity Day Canada brings together role models from across the country to inspire and encourage students to make dignified, positive, and inclusive life choices as they develop into their best selves. The goal of this year's event is to highlight dignity as a vehicle to unify and broaden our sense of community, and instill the notion that one's actions can impact and enrich the lives of others. We're looking for youth role models who are examples of living with dignity to be featured in the Global Dignity Day Canada celebrations this October. Do you have someone to nominate? E-mail us at [email protected]!

My inspiration has always been the wonderful young ladies and gentlemen I see on TIG who are making our world a better place.
