SECTION: Music for Lifelong Learning COUNTRY: Canada PROJECT: PROMOTING INTERCULTURAL UNDERSTANDING THROUGH WORLD MUSIC WORKSHOPS WITH UNDER-RESOURCED ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS: ROOTS & SHOOTS DESCRIPTION: The Roots & Shoots program fosters intercultural understanding and team-building among students while providing under-resourced Vancouver elementary school children with the opportunity to engage in world-class music workshops. It is a unique program that focuses on both social and musical development by giving students from under-resourced schools the opportunity to have experiences in creating music. Students from six schools are selected each year to receive up to twelve hours of music instruction via workshops held in their school and attend a concert at the Chan Centre. In addition, Roots & Shoots seeks to foster team spirit and a sense of community within schools that are struggling on a day to day basis to maintain students‟ attendance and foster a secure school environment. The primary goals of Roots & Shoots are: Fostering intercultural understanding and awareness of cultural diversity among students through first-hand exposure to live music and musicians of different cultures Bringing world-class music into students‟ lives through the workshops and a spectacular concert experience Giving students the opportunity to experience the learning progression from beginning a skill (inschool workshops), developing the skill (a youth group opens each Roots & Shoots concert), and perfecting the skill (seeing the professional artists perform and teach) CURRENT STATUS: The project has just completed its 2010 concert series, and is halfway through the series of workshops. Planning is underway for the 2011 season.
