Sustainability and Community
Thank you to everyone who attended Cultural Days on October 1st 2011 at the Richmond Cultural Centre.
Creating cultural connections was a success. Richmond in 3D Playback youth theatre troupe performed to a packed house and the stories shared about diversity were inspiring. Be sure to check out the Facebook photos.
Creating Cultural Connections
In conjunction with the Richmond Museum’s sustainABILITY? Exhibit, this workshop explores the cultural dimensions of sustainability through an afternoon of dialogue and improv theatre from Rin3D Playback youth theatre troupe and Richmond Multicultural Community Services.
What can you do to be a champion of sustainability in your community? What does cultural diversity have to do with it?
Come on out for an experience that’s not only fun and interesting; but one that will connect you to your community and it’s goals!!!
In this workshop, the specially trained Rin3D Playback Theatre youth troupe will use an improvisational form of theatre called “Playback” to open spaces for dialogue about cultural sustainability in our community.
Sustainability is fundamentally about adapting to a new ethic of living on the planet, so it should come as no surprise that culture plays an important role in community sustainability. After all, culture is integral to living – it embodies everything we are and all that we want to be.
Our culture embraces the sense we make of our lives – our shared values; how we embrace differences. It is what matters to people and communities – our experiences, identities, connections, hopes and dreams, and our visions for the future.
Join us for a fun afternoon of sharing and find out what “Richmond” means to you? Register now at 604 247-8309.
