Between August 2006 and January 2007, a group from
Algonquin College set out on a journey through Africa and broadcast
their journey to schools in Canada. Students were included in the
tour by means of video and live broadcasts. The Windsor-Essex Catholic
District School Board was one of several Boards involved in this innovative
and exciting project. The visual arts students in four of our high
schools followed the trek through Africa and created work in response
to the land, history and culture of the various regions visited. The
work is exhibited in our virtual gallery and is accessible to communities
in Africa involved in the project as well as to our Canadian communities.
We invite response to our work from the various communities.
