  • The Power of Place: Making a Communal Memory Map

    Saturday, April 04, 2020 at 02:00 PM
    Atwater Library and Computer Centre in Westmount, QC, Canada

    In this two-afternoon workshop, presented by the Atwater Writers Exhibition, participants will paint, draw, stitch, and/or appliqué details of a place that evokes personal memories: an old cinema, your grandmother's garden, or another remembered place that is important to you. We will provide a recycled paint tarp for background, as well as art supplies. Come prepared to share your stories of your chosen place: we will talk with each other while we make a communal tapestry for display at the Atwater Library. Bring any meaningful fabric scraps or other material you might wish to include in your part of the memory map  (and don't mind leaving as part of the communal artwork). No sewing or artistic experience necessary.

    Workshop leader Kathleen Winter has written novels, short stories, and an Arctic travel memoir. She has lived in the UK, Newfoundland, and Verdun. She has worked with young people and elders, making folk textile pieces that celebrate memory, place, and personal story.

    Even Ludwig van Beethoven, a young genius who became one of the most famous composers in the world, dealt with bullying. Let us inspire you with his story and the difficulties he faced when he was bullied by his peers, his teachers and even his own father. Maestro Boris Brott, while sharing his own stories of bullying, sheds light on the great Beethoven. This interactive concert joins music and a touching, educational story. The students will learn how to help one another, or how they can help themselves in a situation of bullying. Musical excerpts include Beethoven’s 5th and 9th Symphonies (Ode to Joy with audience participation), Mozart’s Piano concerto no. 21, and many more.

    Appropriate for children from 6-10 years old
