Event description
Stardale Women’s Group presents a cultural experience for the Urbanites.

About this Event

We invite you to embrace an authentic West through an afternoon of empowerment, leadership and art at the Stardale Women’s Group Showcase, "Couture & Culture".

Empowerment, Leadership & Art is the theme of this event. As part of the Way Out West Fest, Stardale welcomes all new comers to attend and learn about First Nations culture and more. After months of labour, the public will have the opportunity to view and purchase original pieces of art created and designed by the girls of Stardale.

JOIN US FOR:

A couture fashion show with the uptown western shop Cody & Sioux.

The amazing short play entitled “Committing” – a performance creation on youth suicide prevention co-created by the Stardale girls and Eugene Stickland. This short play will leave you in awe of the girl’s tremendous courage and resiliency in the face of the life’s challenges in growing up Indigenous in Canadian society today.

Beautiful art created by the Stardale girls will be on display & for sale.

Pow wow dancers will envelope you in the First Nations culture.

Talented Alden Sun Walk from Siksika Nation will perform country & gospel songs.

The Rocky Mountain Symphony Quartet will perform music that connects the west to our souls.

& Lil' Truck On The Prairie food truck will be on site from 3:00 to 8:00 pm.

Raffle:

Hillberg & Berk have donated 3 beautiful pieces of jewelry for Couture & Culture. For everyone who makes a donation to Stardale we will raffle off these three items to three lucky attendees!

DETAILS:

Doors open at 3:00 p.m. at the Inglewood Lantern Church.

Ticket Price: Complimentary but you must be registered and have a ticket to attend. Donations are welcome at the door.

This event is intended to benefit the Stardale Women's Group charity – a group which works directly with indigenous girls to enhance their lives and give them the opportunity to grow their confidence. Way Out West Fest does not monetarily benefit from this event and all donation proceeds will go directly to Stardale. We encourage you to donate as generously as possible – we feel it’s a very worthwhile hands-on group!
