Bob will also demonstrate some of these skills during an evening performance (open to family and friends).

 

DBL BALL

Facilitated by: DBL Ball Quebec

The DBL Ball is a team sport where players can manipulate the ball by hand or foot. A very dynamic sport where the possibilities of actions are immense. The DBL Ball is inspired by the intensity of hockey, basketball dribbling, soccer footwork, volleyball smash, handball suspension, and even baseball sliding. Everyone can find their place on a DBL Ball pitch.

Participants will learn the skills and rules required to develop this new sport in their local recreation programs.

 

MEME MAKING

Facilitated by: Zoé Fortier

Fransaskois artist, arts educator and activist, and graphic designer, Zoé Fortier has a passion for the visual arts, as well as a conviction that culture is a space of expression and of dialogue. She sees an opportunity to build cultural understanding through the use of subtitle and surtitle technologies, which can create dialogue under equal terms, with each group allowed to express itself, and to manifest itself, without having to compromise an essential part of their culture’s expression.

Participants will learn how to facilitate inter-cultural meme making and creative expression programs in their local programming.
