Join percussion instructor Cameron Denby to add a little rhythm to your classroom! This workshop is intended for non-music classes and is meant to occupy one class during a school day. No instrument or experience necessary. Students will be instructed on how to tap, clap or snap a simple rhythm. Next the video will introduce a new rhythm, and the class will work to play both rudimentary rhythms at the same time. As the video progresses more rhythms are introduced and teachers can add on layers depending on class age and level of comprehension. The end is result is your class' very own jam! A fun tutorial that explores, music, rhythm and team work. Join us!
This event is free.
Culture Days Manitoba
Culture Days is a national initiative to celebrate and raise awareness and appreciation for arts and culture in Canada. Established in 2009, Culture Days supports thousands of organizers every year to produce participatory arts and cultural programming in hundreds of communities across the country. These efforts culminate with the Culture Days weekend, annually taking place over the last weekend of each September. In 2020 the celebrations were extended to a four-week run and the same extension will take place from September 24 to October 24, 2021. Since the first cross-country Culture Days, Manitoba has been a leader in both the number and diversity of activities provided, and in attendance on a per capita basis. We are also leaders in best practices, driving the delivery of planning and marketing workshops for rural and northern communities throughout the Province and contributing to the development of a national Culture Days handbook that encourages participation of schools and students. In Manitoba, Culture Days incorporated as Culture Days Manitoba Inc. in January 2013. Our mission is to celebrate the diversity of Manitoba’s arts and culture sector in all regions and communities of the Province. Nuit Blanche Winnipeg is produced by Culture Days Manitoba in collaboration with the Winnipeg Arts Council, Producing Partner. It is a free nighttime exploration and celebration of contemporary art that takes place on the opening Saturday of Culture Days. Core Winnipeg areas including St. Boniface, the Exchange District, Downtown and the West End will be illuminated by art installations and performances pieces. Since 2009 Manitoba has seen a substantial growth of 175% in registered arts and cultural activities as well as growth in attendance. Culture Days has made a difference in Manitoba by showcasing and celebrating the diverse artistic and cultural talent across our province—in communities as far south as Morden to as far north as Churchill, in small venues and galleries dotted across the province to venerated arts institutions—giving access to all citizens, regardless of age, location or experience, to participate.) Culture Days Manitoba and Nuit Blanche Winnipeg will feature hundreds of free cultural events for Manitobans in all corners of the province. Indigenous artists and traditional knowledge sharers, established and emerging artists—citizens across the province are ready to share their passion with you. Please join us and thousands of other Manitobans as we celebrate and share — whether through online workshops for students, soapstone carving in Flin Flon, Dauphin’s Yardfringe or Illuminating the Night at Nuit Blanche – and you will find something that amazes, inspires or simply brings a smile to your face.
