On May 24th, 2017, IDI hosted its annual Creative Minds Contest for Durham Region at the Ajax Convention Centre. The theme for this year was My Canada dedicated to the 150th anniversary of Canada. The master of ceremonies for the evening was award winning actress, Ven Virah.
Fatih Yegul, IDI GTA’s president, thanked the co-organizers of the contest, which are the school boards for Durham region involved in the contest. These include Durham District School Board, Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board, and Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic School Board. He thanked Martyn Beckett, Director of Education for DDSB, who was instrumental in starting the contest five years ago.
This is the sixth year the contest is being held and it keeps growing and gaining more interest.
The keynote for the evening was delivered by Patrick Bizindavyi who is the President and Co-Founder of Unleashed Possibilities Inc
Ms. Novak explained that poverty is the result of colonialism and spoke of her privilege as a white skinned woman of German descent. She encouraged the audience to understand that if someone was experiencing privilege in their life, it was probably as a result of someone else experiencing violence (an all-encompassing definition of violence). It is not an individual cause, but due to the framework or system that is in place. Individuals themselves can work to make the lives they touch better. It is important to think about who is setting the power and position in society.
The evening concluded with the handout of the awards and the students got to find out where they placed.
