Strawberry Hill Elementary • I Have A Dream Art + Farming BIG IDEAS Project
Taking inspiration from the Vancouver Biennale Global Initiative I Have a Dream Community Project, the Surrey school district engaged in exploring, learning and discovering about Farming and Food Systems and their local and global actions and impact.The I Have a Dream installation by artist Shweta Bhattad was moved to the Surrey School Board office for the students to experience the project on a global level as a part of their learning and exploration process. Each school also visited and experienced a destination related to farming and food systems including for example a farm, a food wholesaler, manufacturer or retailer. Each class presented their work at a Biennale Final Celebration to share with their parents, the community, VIP, and media.
This video illustrates the learning process at one of the participating schools: Strawberry Hill Elementary.
