Students from across Winnipeg School Division (WSD) and participants of the International Storytelling Festival connected at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights for the finale of the WSD Everybody has the Right (EHTR) program for 2016/17.
The EHTR Human Library events over the past year have helped students consider “identity” from a variety of different lenses as they develop their own sense of who they are. Over two days, students learnt about artifact storytelling with international storyteller Jamie Oliviero and Chris Scholl from DNA Rhythms.
As a finale art piece for the 2016/17 EHTR, students took part in creating a giant puzzle on the floor of the John & Bonnie Buhler Hall at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. The puzzle represents both the individuality and connectivity across Winnipeg School Division.
