We’re finally set up to register for our June 2, 2022 virtual workshops next week Thursday. The form can be found at https://forms.gle/UrR1R9Bt8Jv23AEx7
The Red River Heritage Fair will host some virtual workshop sessions on Thursday, June 2,, at 9:00, 10:30, 1:15, and 2:15. We’ve almost got all of our presenters lined up and they include Square Peg Tours (known for their local and quirky tours of Winnipeg), Treaty Education, a Second World War workshop focussing on Diepper, and everything you wanted to know about elections as brought to you by Elections Manitoba.
We haven’t been able to see you in person for three years now, so we’d like to bring at least some of the Red River Heritage Fair to you virtually. On June 2nd, we’ll be hosting Canadian heritage presentations on Zoom, available to your class. All you have to do is connect and show your class what’s happening. We hope to have speakers live so that you can ask questions via the Zoom chat feature.
The presentations will be at 9:00 AM, 10:30 AM, 1:15 PM, and 2:15 PM. The topics will be announced in a couple of days.
The event is completely and utterly free to you, which with all the rising prices lately is almost too good to be true. However, advance registration is required for each class.
We’ll have more details for you in a couple of days.
The Art Category at the Red River Heritage Fair and Symposium needs your entries!
Let your creative students shine!!
To celebrate our 15th anniversary and the adoption of our new and improved name, we are offering 3 Art category slots to any school! These are over and above the number of slots you qualify for because of your schoolâ€™s participation numbers. Or, you may be a school that only wishes to enter the Art category!!
Students are required to prepare an artistâ€™s statement as well as some brief information about their art piece and how it connects to Canada. Any process work such as preliminary sketches etc. would also help show judges the creative process.
Registration is the same as for our traditional research projects: students will participate in workshops, have two judgings and receive participation certificates and medals.
More details can be found on the website www.redriverheritage.ca
Their contribution to our Fair and to the learning, growth, and education of the hundreds of students involved in our program is very much appreciated.
