Toronto comedian Elvira Kurt and Sudbury singer/songwriter Angie Nussey are teaming up Feb. 5 for Rising Up!, presented by Amelia Rising Sexual Assault Centre of Nipissing.

“Amelia Rising is excited to have created a new annual opportunity for the community to rise up together and gather in solidarity, to have fun, share laughs, and talk about consent and sexual violence in our communities,” the centre states in a release.

“Over the past few years, Amelia Rising has been experiencing a significant increase in demand for services for women who are survivors of sexual violence. As such, the agency feels compelled to speak up about the growing problem of gender-based violence and to continue making consent part of the conversation within our community.”

Rising Up! Takes place from 7:30-9:30 pm (doors open at 7 pm) Feb. 5 at The Grande Event Centre in North Bay. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Advance tickets can be purchased online at eventbrite.ca or at Amelia Rising, 101 Worthington St. E., Suite 11).
