WORKSHOP IN SCHOOLS SERIES

What
The series consist of storytelling, performing
and visual arts workshops and classes
programmed directly into schools and
community centres in areas where many
members of the Aboriginal community reside.
Each session is designed to emphasize
interaction, participation, dialogue and
education in a lively, creative environment.
The bottom line is fun!

Why
We offer this program to students in order
to preserve the language, culture and art
forms of the First Nations people, to encourage
creativity, to build self-esteem and to share!
The stories and art practices of First Nations
culture have enormous depth, they are rich
with teachings, and they are as relevant today
as they were in the past.

Where
We conduct workshops in your classroom,
school gymnasium or in your local community
centre! You choose what works best for you!

Who
All workshops and classes are facilitated by
leading professional artists who have worked
nationally and internationally.

How Much
All workshops are offered at a suggested
donation of $150. No school will be turned
away due to  nancial restrictions.
