Spring Break Children’s Art & Nature Workshop
March 13 to 17th, 2017 | 9am to 12pm
This workshop will feature five mornings of jam-packed fun exploring art and nature. Everyone has a story to tell. Through creative play, children and youth will experiment with movement, paint, sculpture and sound to learn how to tell their own stories. This year, we are offering two programs:
- Mixed Media Arts (Ages 7 to 10)
- Creative Filmmaking for Youth (Ages 11 to 13)
Raising the Curtain
The Imagination Network has launched a ground-breaking three-year project – Raising the Curtain – that involves creating a theatrical production that is written, produced and performed by people with dementia in collaboration with professional artists, care givers, and community members. Through a partnership with Douglas College, this project also has an important research component with a goal of identifying ways in which creative engagement improves the lives of people with dementia.
Resurgence is a youth-led project that involves the creative exploration of cultural re-awakening. The project is a collaboration between indigenous and non-indigenous peoples on the Sunshine Coast, and includes professional artists, emerging artists (youth), indigenous facilitators, and children.
As part of their exploration process, artists will undergo a community engagement process that involves facilitating children’s and youth workshops. They will also produce a public art installation. The entire project will be documented and a short film will be produced.
