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.
As a follow-up to the announcement that our 2020 fair has been cancelled, feel free to explore these two options: Students can still create and submit a video on this website. http://kids.canadashistory.ca/Kids/Jeunes-Citoyens/C-est-parti-!
There is also a virtual fair sponsored by Canada’s history Society. https://mailchi.mp/canadashistory/canadas-virtual-heritage-fair
The Red River Heritage Committee has decided that at this time it is prudent to cancel our fair scheduled for May 6, 2020. We understand that this will be a disappointment for your students but these are unusual times.
The Young Citizens program, where students may create videos on a volunteer basis, will still be operating, so please encourage your students to participate!
Looking forward to a successful fair in 2021!
