Thirteen local and international chalk artists transformed the parking lot asphalt into a colourful art gallery during the full day celebration. This family friendly event hosted a range of interactive displays, arts and crafts activities, face painting and live entertainment.
This video is promo for The Stream of Dreams Murals Society. From the Stream of Dreams website: “Stream of Dreams is a whole school eco-education program that educates communities about their local watershed, rivers and streams, encourages behavioral change to conserve and protect water, empowers youth to make a positive environmental impact, and creates a community art legacy by and for the whole community.”
This video features the work of Vancouver based Elements Society and their project Destination Conservation, which brings together students, educators, and school custodians so they can develop practical plans to conserve energy and water and reduce waste at school.
Although the program is facilitated by adults over the course of the 3-year project, the emphasis is on students to develop their own initiatives, which in turn are directed at educating other students in how to make positive environmental change in their own unique school environment.
