RICHMOND CULTURAL CENTRE PERFORMANCE HALL

Join us in our Culture Days celebrations with Alanna Ho of Rainbow Forecast Project for a collaborative installation / performance for all ages to play with sound and music-making.

This performance is a culmination of a series of “Instrument Making and Active Listening” workshops led by artist Alanna Ho with children aged 4-6 years old over the month of September 2017 as an additional component of the Eternal Return exhibition. Workshops were held at Appleseed Children’s Playhouse in Richmond, an educational playground where students learned about basic circuitry, building instruments, and playing sound games to discover the sonic potential of everyday objects.

Students will participate in a live performance, and invite audience members to join in the fun of sound-making through interactive play. Performance takes place in the CC Performance Hall, located just outside the Gallery doors to the left.

More information on this and the many events taking place across Canada during Culture Days weekend available here.

 

 

Rainbow Forecast Project is a non-profit art and community initiative founded by Alanna Ho in 2016. The project aims to share children’s stories through new media and contemporary art spaces. Engaging youth in the process of creating and performing in public develops confidence in showing their work and expressing ideas; expands possibilities and potential for creative output; encourages collaboration with peers and creative professionals to develop social, digital and creative literacy; and exposes children to art beyond the traditional to media such as video, installations, theatre and soundwork so that youth can express their ideas in a multidisciplinary method.

Appleseed Children’s Playhouse is an indoor educational playground where we strive to create integrated activities and programs focusing on developing skills for school and life. Our curriculums are enriching, creative and inclusive for children of varied ages as well as abilities.  Our pedagogy is to foster the nurturing elements of iCARE: intelligence, Creativity, Achievement, Resilience, and Emotional. Our facilitators and playground supervisors engage children in sound, fitness, art, science, math, and technology activities that follow them to discover the wonders of learning.

Alanna Ho, Founder of Rainbow Forecast Project, is an interdisciplinary performer and educator, working in sound, installations and performance art.  As a freelance educator, she is passionate about engaging a welcoming creative space for children to immerse into an experimental approach to art and play.  Currently she leads new media and sound design workshops for children at the New Westminster New Media Gallery and with democratic school Windsor House through the Western Front in Vancouver.  She also facilitates experimental and interdisciplinary play sessions at Appleseed Richmond for ages 0-12.
