Fall is here, the salmon are spawning in the Kagawong River, and the Elemental Festival 2016 opened with a beautiful and moving performance of Lisa Hamalainen's play There Is No Word for Wilderness by the river Friday night. For other events of the weekend check the Festival Facebook page, and get the updated schedule at the 4e studio or the Park Centre in Kagawong.
4e is thrilled to announce a full-fledged River School program thanks to funding from The Ontario Trillium Foundation.
We've partnered with Manitoulin Streams to deliver a series of summer programs for kids and adults (short and long sessions) along the Kagawong River.
Each program will be jam packed with integrated art-science activities and river exploration, specifically tailored to the age group. You or your child will learn in a holistic way that integrates embodied, hands-on scientific learning with creative expression and art. You or your child will come away from the program looking at the Kagwong River and its watershed in a new way; feeling connected to the place you call home. Also … it's going to be a truck load of creative fun! Check our program page for the details.
We had such an overwhelming response to last summer's pilot program, that we're revamping, relaunching and expanding the program to include an one week intensive for kids aged 4-6, four half day sessions for kids 4-9, and two adult programs.
Come prepared to get your feet wet, and your hands dirty.
