SAVAC workshops at School Board's Asian Heritage Month

As Education Officer for SAVAC (The South Asian Visual Arts Centre), Allan conducted two workshops to discuss Sharlene Bamboat's film, Tapestry, at yesterday's Asian Heritage Month Symposium. The Toronto District School Board and Toronto Catholic District School Board organized the event at OISE all day yesterday. Classes of grades 9 through 11 discussed the challenges of maintaining and understanding their parents' traditions in multicultural Canada.

SAVAC is offering Tapestry and 10 other short films to high schools across the GTA along with lesson plans to be taught in classes for the 2010-11 school year. The lesson plan for Tapestry is available here.
