Celebration of Research
March 19th, 2011 from 1pm - 4pm
Organized by U-Links Centre for Community Based Research
Haliburton School of the Arts Great Hall, Haliburton, Ontario


The purpose of the event is to display the work of Trent University students involved in this year’s community-based projects. We also invite groups involved in community-based work to contribute a display. These research and service projects inform the community about a broad range of social, cultural, environmental, and economic topics and issues. The event is a wonderful opportunity for organizations, students, and interested citizens to meet, share information, and build on the great ideas that often begin with a bit of research!
The findings from Visible Voices, an initiative I have implemented in Haliburton County, connecting seniors through artmaking, will be on display.

'A tale, however slight, illuminates truth.' -- Rumi
We all have stories waiting to be told. Storytelling is a means of helping us understand ourselves, the world and our place in it. As a modality it can be woven into expressive arts experiences for all ages and abilities. Through demonstrations, exercises and games, the power of fairytales, myths and legends will be explored. Investigate ways to engage people in telling their stories, for example through sandtray or story cards. Practice skills to tell stories that amplify or replace the spoken word through, for example, visual art, group telling, movement and sound. How to select stories, encourage life stories and original story writing will be discussed. There will be a material fee of $20.
