Carnival in a Day Happening in January 2019 this is a practical, immersive and action-packed experience day for teachers and students from up to 15 schools. Participants will opt for sessions in music, dance and design and over the course of the day they will create all the elements needed to make a carnival procession. Alongside this, students will be trained up as Carnival Ambassadors, leaving the day prepared to share their learning with other classes to make this opportunity spectacular back in school. Activities include: • A lively introduction to carnival, with a showcase of inspiring material from the artistic team, group warm– ups and sharing of ideas • The group will then be split into three, each with a focus on music, dance and design/making o The musicians will work with The Kinetika Bloco performance group to learn a tune (suitable for drummers, brass players and music teachers) o The dancers will work with Jeanefer Jean- Charles to create choreography for the Bloco tune, trying on Kinetika’s carnival costumes. o The artists will work up designs for their school carnival and have a practical making session with designers, Ali Pretty and Ray Mahabir. • During the afternoon the three groups will come back as one to bring all the elements together. This will allow dedicated time for teachers to begin in-school carnival planning, with their student Carnival Ambassadors. Suitability KS2 (year 5-6), KS3-5. Both events require the attendance of 2 teachers and 5 students maximum, per school taking part. 34
