Wild Voices programs are cancelled for April 2020 through June 2020 due to full and partial school closures in BC. In the coming months we will be planning ways for the Wild Voices program to restart in September 2020, including new options for online learning with our Wild Voices programs as a new bookable option for our Wild Voices programming.
For online learning in May and June 2020 we encourage you to check out the Wild Voices Online presentation series! More information and registration can be found at cbeen.ca/wild-voices-online.

About the Program
Situated in a natural area, this class will ask students to take two different perspectives when engaging with the natural world. Students will be led through an activity that directs them to explore a part of the natural world first through a scientific lens. Students findings will be shared with the whole group. Next, students will be asked to explore the same part of the natural world through the eyes of an artist and will be asked to create an artistic piece to represent their engagement (song, poem, sculpture, drawing etc.). Group discussion and sharing will follow and will focus upon differing ways of knowing, viewing, regarding and exploring the world.

"Rita is organized and has some good activities. I'd recommend this workshop being an hour longer, to give children a chance to relax and enjoy the activities and slow down to enjoy the forest itself as well." - Marcella Edwards
