It is with incredibly HUGE excitement that I send this e-mail to announce the launch of Lost Lyrics’ 5-Year Anniversary Conference: The Roots of the Rose! I can’t believe we are here…after the adventures, struggles, hustles, inspirations, tears, laughter and smiles…we are celebrating our 5-Year Anniversary. I really hope that you, our communities, can come out and celebrate, learn, explore, create and engage with us. Read about it below and make sure to register on-line to attend. Everything is PAY WHAT YOU CAN!!!
2012 marks the 5th year of existence for Lost Lyrics and to celebrate this anniversary we are organizing a 2-Day Conference entitled: The Roots of the Rose. Inspired by Tupac Shakur’s poem The Rose that Grew from Concrete, this conference will explore what it means to build an alternative education movement from the ground up.
Here is a snapshot of what you can expect on Saturday June 2nd and Sunday June 3rd:
Day One: The Symposium
Where: Ryerson University (55 Gould Street)
Workshops and Panels Presented by: Asian Arts Freedom School, Sameena Eidoo, Nigel Barriffe, Kurt Orderson, ILL NANA/DiverseCity Dance Company, Mahlikah Awe:ri, Seed II Soil, Basics Community Newsletter, Simon Black, LIFE Movement, Educational Attainment West and More…
Day Two: The Live Report Card
Where: Art Gallery of Ontario (317 Dundas Street West)
The Live Report Card is an annual event where our students as artists and advocates creatively share the knowledge they gain in Lost Lyrics programs with the community. The students host and manage the event as well as construct and perform various pieces that they design, choreograph, and produce. They utilize theatre, poetry, stepping, rap, song, photography, visual arts and breakdancing to educate the community members who attend, which often includes their teachers, families, friends and the larger Lost Lyrics community.Click here for more info: http://www.lostlyrics.ca/blog/lost-lyrics-5-year-anniversary-conference-the-live-report-card
