Are you a teacher looking for a fun way to educate your students on other cultures?
Visit MonsterArts.ca/Youth to learn about requesting a South Asian arts workshop for your class. (If you’re not a teacher, quick, tell your teacher friends!)
Started in 2013, the #MonsterArts for Youth program by monstrARTity helps teachers fill gaps in South Asian curriculum by providing school children of all backgrounds hands-on workshops in Bollywood and Bhangra dance, Hindi music, ghazal writing, mandala-making, filmmaking and more.
Supported by the Peel District School Board, Halton Catholic District School Board and York Region District School Board, workshops led by professional artists are available virtually to schools in BC and ON and in-person to schools in ON.
- Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression: South Asian students will see themselves reflected in the curriculum, while creating safe and inclusive space for students of all backgrounds to engage in South Asian culture
- Mental Health: students express themselves, relieve stress and anxiety, and explore their experiences and emotions
- Social Studies: teachers can connect arts education with curriculum regarding traditions, material culture, identity within a multicultural society and human impact on the environment.
- Arts Education: teachers get access to expert resources to expand the students’ exposure to classical and contemporary South Asian art forms
The program has reached over 23,000 students to date!
National Day Of Remembrance And Action on Violence Against Women.
The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women is about remembering those who have experienced gender-based violence and those who we have lost to it.
Today we remember and honour the 14 innocent women who lost their lives over 30 years ago at Polytechnique Montréal (December 6, 1989).
