A Co-operative Education opportunity for students with an interest in Aboriginal perspectives, and a passion for the Arts
Across Experiences aims to build cross-cultural understanding with Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students through storytelling, theatre, dance, and new media. Aboriginal perspectives will be woven into all options of the program. Students will be mentored and supported by Aboriginal Elders and artists, as they draw upon their diverse backgrounds to tell their stories through drama, dance and or film and media arts. Priority consideration will be given to Aboriginal students interested in developing and sharing their creativity. The program culminates with a tour of Gr. 7/8 schools and a Gala Showcase Performance at a professional theatre.
