2016 PA Days [Workers Arts & Heritage Centre]

 

 

2016 PA Days at the Workers Arts & Heritage Centre

@ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Want to provide your child with some fun, unique learning experiences that connect the arts with the culture and history of working people in Canada? Look no further than our popular PA Day programs! Our full day camps are facilitated by professional artists and educators, and include a wholesome lunch and snacks throughout the day.

February 26th, 2016     Masks, Improv and Movement with Jody Boston    
Drawing from WAHC’s collection of masks and parade props, performance artist educator Jody Boston will lead improvisation and movement exercises that encourage kids to foster their creative instincts. Through exploration of character development and story building we will bring masks to life.

June 10th, 2016     Assembling a Future City with Matt McInnes    
Using drawing, printmaking and found objects, participants will decide what elements make up the city of the future! Taking inspiration from worker’s assembly lines and working collaboratively, kids will think about preserving people, places and things that already make their city great, as well as things that they would like to add to make a good city even better.

For ages 6-12; pre-registration is required. Admission for each PA Day session is $20. Subsidized spots are available—no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. For more information or to register, download and fill out out a registration form (doc and pdf formats) or contact Tara Bursey, Program Coordinator at (905) 522-3003 ex. 29 or tara@wahc-museum.ca.

About studios1.ca
Our 19th year of classes - NOW IN DOWNTOWN HAMILTON!! studios1.ca was created as a dance course information hub for Canadian Choreographer Gabreïl Spiegelschrift and associated dance professionals initially in Toronto, Guelph and abroad in Ireland and the US. In 2009 while centred in Montréal, studios1.ca expanded to include the former Marianopolis Community Recreation offering additional programs taught by leading national dance and fitness professionals. studios1.ca was relocated to Hamilton Ontario in the autumn of 2014.

About Gabreïl Spiegelschrift
Raised on the family pig farm outside his birthplace of Fergus, Ontario, this country-boy-turned-street-punk dropped out of high school to begin a continuing journey in contemporary dance. Combining high art conventions with folk metaphor and eastern dance ideals with western idioms into his signature raw brute force, Gabreïl creates what Dance International has called “gutsy and distinct” live performances and award winning dance film projects that have been presented and broadcasted through out Canada, the United States and Europe.

Some notable collaborations and performances include Canadian Industrial rockers Malhavoc, and the ethnopunk world music ensemble Rhea’s Obsession, Montréal based American cellist Elinor Frey, as well as Ashley MacIsaac & the Paper Boys for the CBC duMaurier Concert Stage in Vancouver. His adventures have also included teaching comprehensive social dance classes of Swing and Latin since 1996 and hiding out in Ireland ceart go leor!

Culture Strategy Town Hall

Ontario’s culture strategy

People, passion and ideas – it’s what culture is all about. But what does it mean to you?  Tell us about what you value — and how you would strengthen arts and culture to build healthier, more vibrant and prosperous communities. Your ideas will help us design Ontario’s Culture Strategy, which will set a vision for arts and culture, define priorities and guide support for the sector in the years to come.

This is part of our Open Government commitment to engage citizens and gather public input before policies are made. In winter 2016, we will report back about what we heard, before posting a draft strategy for public input. As part of this initiative, from October through December, people in Ontario can participate in the consultation at town hall sessions in 11 communities from October 13 to December 3, 2015.

In Hamilton, there will be a Community Consultation on Thursday, October 15, 2015 from 7 PM to 9:30 PM. This consultation will take place at the Art Gallery of Hamilton and feature guest speakers Lynn Coady (author, screenwriter) and Tyler Tekatch (film / video maker).

The culture strategy developed through this process will set the government’s priorities and provide the plan to support the culture sector over the next five years. A Culture Strategy Advisory Group will provide expertise and diverse perspectives on the role of culture in Ontario and the development of the culture strategy.

For further information on the consultations, visit the Culture Strategy website or visit the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and Sport.
