We have established cultural and educational links between Zambian and Scottish schools through art, storytelling & Music, with the help of The Bird Exchange creator, Ewan McVicar in Scotland. The first exchanges of bird images arrived in Zambia in 2013 from 18 schools around Scotland and two Zambian schools sent paintings of birds across to Scotland. This has developed into Cultural and Educational exchanges of information between schools in both countries using art, storytelling and Music via courier and the internet.
COME TO THE MUSEUM AND HAVE A LOOK...
The Exhibition is open to the public from Tuesday 18 March through to 14 April. It will showcase an amazing display of art, storytelling & music from 14 Livingstone schools where many of the children have never before used paints or done any arts or crafts.
This project is giving so much fun and excitement to school children here in Livingstone, many of whom are vulnerable children and orphans. Visit the Livingstone 2013 website for more information on the Exchange Project.
