Celebrating 5 Years of Foxy

FOXY is an art's based sexual health program that introduces a new way of talking with young women about sexual health, sexuality, and relationships through schools and youth groups throughout the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Yukon. 

During the summer months, FOXY hosts week long Peer Leader Retreats out at Blachford Lake Lodge where participants have the opportunity to express themselves through drama, music, digital story-telling, moose-hide beading, and photography. Each of the photographs in this exhibit were taken with great care by a peer leader out at the Blachford Lake Lodge Retreat as part of their photography portfolios that they spend the week creating.
