About our pre-show programming:
Vision of Tomorrow is a grassroots group in Regent Park who believe, begin and build projects and programs that bring a better tomorrow for our communities. In each of our projects and programs, we start with belief. Believe change is possible and then we begin taking direct action with the skills and understanding we currently have. We focus our intentions on building capacity by partnering with stakeholders in the community. Together we combine the necessary ingredients, tools, and resources to achieve each project or program vision of a Better Tomorrow. Visit www.visionoftomorrow.ca.
