Performance Of Your Life

Performance of Your Life pairs seniors with grade 6/7 students of the Calgary Arts Academy. Every month, seniors meet with students to share their life story, based on the questions asked by the group. Students decide as a group how to artistically express their seniors’ story (play, song, painting, poem, etc.) and work throughout the year developing their unique creative representation. At the end of the school year, there is a celebration gala where students perform or display their interpretation of the senior’s story to the public, including the “star” senior and their family/friends.
