Indigenous Showcase to feature '60s scoop survivor, documentary

Scoop survivor to speak

The Indigenous Showcase returns to Vernon's Towne Theatre next week.

The 19-plus Feb. 7 event will feature '60s scoop survivor Sheryl Newton, who will speak about her experience and her book Finding Izzy, followed by a Q&A session.

Following an intermission, Kim Senklip Harvey's boundary-breaking rockumentary "Break Horizons: A Concert Documentary," will be screened.

Harvey donated her film's distribution fee to the North Okanagan Friendship Centre Society for their youth bicycle refurbishing program, Cycle Solutions: Bikes for Indigenous Youth.

There will also be Indigenous vendors in the lobby, including a Ki-Low-Na Friendship Centre youth art fundraiser.

The event is adult-only, as the Towne will have its wine bar open.

Tickets are $11 each.

The Indigenous Showcase is a niche tourism experience created by Glohaven Community Hub, and Towne Theatre.

Events are held on the first Tuesday of every month.

Enjoy Indigenous artisans, films, music, food, beverages and storytelling through guest speakers, and performers.
