Grades 1-3

Feeling out of place is something many of us experience, but sometimes we find friends in unlikely places or at unexpected times! This program teaches us how to embrace difference and creativity, while not forgetting the people, places and things that are important to us.

Wednesday, November 15 from 1:00-3:00pm

Through heroic journeys, altered realities and supernatural powers, these films help us challenge negative stereotypes about our identities, cultures and communities.
