An online experience that keeps students engaged and encouraged while covering some of life's most challenging topics. We talk about the hard stuff… Mental health, depression, anxiety and finding a purpose in a world that is increasingly stressful and difficult to navigate. This message is more relevant now than ever. The program comes with a journal for each student with reflection questions and mental health resources designed to help students dream and look forward to their future. The heart beat of this program is not to answer all of life's big questions but rather to shine a glimmer of hope into the struggles that so many young people are facing today.
In 2016/17, Sean and Karli Quigley started a tour in support of an organization with the hopes of ending global poverty. They travelled to schools playing music and telling their story. After the show, the students would line up to talk to Karli. They quickly noticed the topics of conversation almost always had to do with their struggles with anxiety. This is something Karli would share from the stage for a couple minutes during their hour long show. About how anxiety made “changing the world” feel so big and so far away. It led to the realization that students couldn’t care about changing the world when they didn’t even care about themselves.
Over the next while, their messaging started to shift into a conversation about mental health in hopes that finding purpose for their lives would help teens feel valuable and important. This shift got them noticed by one of the largest mental health programs in Canada, which they in turn started to work alongside. In 2018 Sean and Karli went their own way to create their first solo tour called the Hope Dealer tour where they exclusively talked mental health to schools and communities across Canada. Their messaging now completely their own and their voice more certain than ever that this was exactly where they were supposed to be.
With the coronavirus pausing all touring plans in 2021 they decided to create an online version of their show, reaching a global market for the first time. Their message stays the same “If you still have a pulse, you still have a purpose.” They aim to see people from all walks of life, all communities regardless of their age, race, religion or social status see that their life matters and that they can make a difference in the world. This new show is created in support of their 2019 album “Peace in the Chaos”. Their hope with this tour is to shine a glimmer of hope into this chaotic life.
