About Séan McCann – 

A survivor of sexual abuse as a teenager, Séan has spent the last ten years touring North America as a musical keynote speaker, singing and sharing his story with theatre audiences, front line workers, teachers, students, patients, inmates, veterans, and anyone who has struggled with their mental health. Séan believes that music is medicine and a song is never more powerful than when it is sung with a friend.

As part of this event, the CACAC is benefiting from an
online silent art auction, operated by JRADCLIFFE  Auctioneering.

These artworks were created and curated by Kathryn Fellowsand donated to this auction in her memory by her daughter Sharon Moffat.

Watch on social media for a link to this auction, which opens on February 4th.

We’re building a path forward for victims of child abuse, neglect, and sexual exploitation. The Centre of Excellence will house many partners in one building, including teams from Alberta Health Services, RCMP, and the Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre. 

We’ve created a strategic partnership with Red Deer Polytechnic to build this innovative centre right here in the heart of Central Alberta on RDP land.
