Dream Catchers Workshop

PINCHER CREEK YOUTH TO SHARE THEIR DREAMS FOR CANADA
Dream Catchers Workshops Transform Art, Music, and Poetry into a Musical Production
What is your dream for Alberta? What is your dream for Canada?
As Canada celebrates its 150th birthday, Confederation Centre of the Arts is asking the youth of Pincher Creek to share their hopes for the future to inspire the next generation of change in this country.
On Tuesday, February 21, Kinnie Star will be the guest artist at The Dream Catchers Workshop, providing inspiration to Pincher Creek’s young dreamers.
At the workshop, youth aged 11-13 will participate in drama games, artistic activities, and will create a small dreamcatcher to share their dreams for the future.
Submissions of dreams from all youth 17 and under are also being accepted in both French and English at dreamingcanada.ca or capteursdereves.ca.
The dreams of young Canadians are being collected from all over the country, through the online submissions and workshops, and will be used as inspiration to create a musical production that will tour Canada later this summer.
Indigenous visual artist, Nick Huard, and Associate Artistic Director of The 2017 Charlottetown Festival, Mary Francis Moore will be the workshop facilitators leading the young participants through the dream catching experience.
Community Partner: Alberta Parks
