Culture and Identity II

Expanding Awareness Outside Ourselves

Ideal For: Grade 7+

Maximum number of participants: 50

It can be difficult to appreciate the experiences of others until we can take a step outside ourselves. Designed to move learners from a personal cultural awareness to a social cultural awareness and then back inward to understand the implications for their own lives, this program brings a deeper awareness and understanding to the cultural exchanges that make up the fabric of Canada.

Explore culture and identity through interactive collaborative and individual activities. Introduce yourself and interact with others using a set of proscribed cultural codes. The experience is not one you’ll soon forget! Experience the different ways individuals and groups negotiate cultural dynamics and explore cultural landscapes in a fun, hands-on way with building bricks. Learn how these interactions and feelings represent the cultural interactions within our country. Explore your own cultural identity through wearable symbolic micro art.
