May 2018: "Blossom" Event
On Sunday, May 6th, April, showers were still taking over the day. Still, the Flaunt It team did not let that prevent them from making St. Stephen's Community House's Youth Arcade Studio filled with May flowers.
The "Blossom" series focuses on celebrating self-growth and development. It is designed to remind us to prioritize our mental health and well being as we reflect on the pathways we shape towards our aspirations, dreams, and goals. In this series, we asked our guests to reflect on what blossom means to them. With an open mic, flower crown station, flower bouquet station, self-care activities and more, it was a beautiful Self Care Sunday with over 60 guests from across the GTA.
Thank you to our trustee organization — St. Stephen's Community House — for helping us make this event happen and for providing us with the Youth Arcade Studio space. We would also like to thank our funders — The City of Toronto, Adobe and Ryerson University's Faculty of Arts.
To bloom. To grow. To nourish. To strengthen.
We asked each model to self-reflect and write us a paragraph to tell their story. Tell us: “What does blossom mean to you? What does self-growth entail and how does it affect you?” The following responses are their sincere, creative, unfiltered and unedited responses about self-growth.
