Date: (English workshop) Monday June 27, 2016 – 12pm-4pm
Location: Le Salon 1861 550 Rue Richmond, Montreal (in Little Burgundy)
This FREE educator’s workshop, which will include lunch, will take place in Le Salon 1861’s downstairs Co-Creation Lab /IPLAI workshop area.
Burgundy Jazz, produced by Catbird Productions, is a multi-platform project (web documentary, app and eBook) that explores Montreal’s incredible contribution to jazz through the legendary Black musicians and community of Little Burgundy – the neighbourhood that was known as the “Harlem of the North” and the birthplace of Canadian jazz.
The accompanying content-rich Burgundy Jazz Educator’s Guide, downloadable for free on Curio.ca, offers educators more than the history of jazz or music. It provides an interdisciplinary approach to offering teachers student-centred projects on urbanism, social issues, stories that reflect the communities of their students, Black History and more – while highlighting digital literacy and critical thinking skills.
Educators will leave with practical, hands-on experience on how they can empower students to engage with their local community and its rich history, as well as the Burgundy Jazz interactive web documentary, mobile app and eBook to create, manipulate, recycle, share and evaluate: information, digital photos, videos and maps in their creation of digital neighbourhood narratives.
Lunch will be served before the afternoon workshop 12-1pm.
