Illustrating My Community

In this action-packed workshop we will become Acadian dancers, spoon players, engineers, and even take part in Inuit games! Through music, dance, art, literature and traditional games we will compare the unique cultures of Acadia, the Inuit and the Prairies, inspired by David Bouchard’s acclaimed book If You’re Not From the Prairie. We will develop your own book based on personal experience or perceptions of Calgary. Assembling the illustrations from a wide selection of found objects and photographs we will create our very own book, \’If you\’re not from Calgary…\’ — Workshop Duration: 1 hour
