At G Day, we believe that once upon a time, communities around the world gathered in ritualized celebrations to honour the transition from childhood into adolescence. While vestiges of this tradition can still be seen in some cultural and faith traditions, for the most part in urban, secular life, it has sadly been lost.
G Day is re-imagining this lost tradition and employing it as an antidote to the culture of social comparison and competition by exploring girls’ shared experience in a safe, supportive and inspiring environment.
We are creating a global social movement, starting with holding events in communities across Canada where Girls and their Champions (parents/guardians and others playing a meaningful role in supporting Girls futures) can come together to welcome, witness and receive Girls as they enter the next phase of their life journey.
At G Day, we become the “Village”, if only for a day.
Since its inception in 2014, I have captured each event on video and developed several marketing tools to help us spread G Day around the globe.
