The project’s activities took place primarily in the Vanier–Overbrook area, a focus area for the Ottawa Bahá’í community. Highlights included presentations by Chelsea-based Oneworld Dance Workshop and Montreal-based Soulstorm Dance Workshop; a lively youth fireside discussion, which attracted several seekers; and a coffee house which gathered almost 50 youth and junior youth on the project’s final night. The project was deemed a success, having kindled the interest of several junior youth in the Faith, and, among other things, inciting them to join junior youth-focused study circles.
Tristan Schuurman, the namesake of the project, was born, physically and mentally handicapped, to a Bahá’í family in Canada’s Maritime provinces. Though he lived only seventeen years, he touched those who knew him with his joy, devotion and faith. His life was the subject of a biography by his mother, Suzanne Schuurman.
