In Collaboration with Lawrence Grassi Middle School (Canadian Rockies Public Schools), and Alberta Health Services The Creative Spark – Building Dreams to Believe In conducted a series of improv activities with Lawrence Grassi Middle School students reflecting on the challenges of peer pressure and friendship.
Students chose five different aspects around the subject and then came up with a positive approach to each aspect which they performed in skits. Following each skit the students reflected as a group on the positive ideas they can apply to everyday life. Skits are videotaped for in-school educational health and wellness programming.
The Creative Spark – Building Dreams to Believe In project is a grateful recipient of Lafarge Community Outreach funding. A true collaborative program the Creative Spark works closely within the school curriculum as well as receiving input and participation from school guidance councillors, community and provincial healthcare services (mental health and addiction) councillors as well as it links with municipal social series.
The Creative Spark would also like to thank the Canmore Improv Association also know as The CIA. In addition to working closely with Schools and Public Health councillors the CIA Performance Improv Troupe has contributed both creative input as well as fund raising on behalf of the Creative Spark program, thank you.
