We are delighted to announce that Cenovus Energy will once again be
funding two Wordpower programs to run in 2020! Both will feature a team
of Albertan children’s literary artists touring to schools in rural
areas that often find themselves unable to book artist visits on their
own due to prohibitive travel costs.
Wordpower East will see a team of eight artists touring schools in the Cold Lake / Bonnyville / Lac La Biche / Wood Buffalo region. Wordpower West takes the program to schools in Edson, Hinton, Whitecourt, High Praire, and Grande Cache. Both tours will take place in late April 2020.
About the Tour
A team of eight artists will travel to each region on Sunday, conduct approximately four to six sessions of 40 to 60 minutes with up to 100 students at a time in local schools each day, participate in one or two evening presentation events during the week, and then head home on Friday evening. Artists will be driving themselves to the area and between the schools. Artists will usually be traveling in pairs but may have some days where they are visiting very small schools separately. Artists also create a simple 1-page teacher guide handout on their presentations to assist teachers in making connections between the presentations and curriculum after the visit.
If you have any questions, please do call Jennifer or Stephanie at 780-422-8232 or email email@example.com
