What is the School Outreach Program?

LunarFest School Outreach Program aims to encourage students in learning about the diversity in their environment. Through our craft workshops, we are inspiring creativity and sharing stories. 

Every year, LunarFest brings arts and culture into classrooms. While the Lunar New Year is typically celebrated by Asian cultures, we believe the more the merrier. Using fun, interactive activities, we ask students to think about the stories they grew up with, and be curious about the stories of their friends and neighbours. 

In the Year of the Dragon, let’s use our hands and imagination to create a society where everyone is Born to Be Free!

Born to be Free

Do cultural symbols represent identity or the limits of it? 

Is it a reflection on our civilization, or a search for a sense of belonging? 

Do we only want to tell the stories of the past, or do we hope to create stories for the future?

Traditionally, the dragon symbolizes authority and nobility.

After being passed down from generation to generation, what is the essence of the dragon’s spirit?

The powerful beast as we know it has become symbols that people take pride in, from warding evil to maintaining balance.

Under the shadow of the preconceived dragon, do we feel truly free?

If dragons really exist, if they can really guide our future, if they can represent a community standing strong, if they can give people a sense of belonging…

then perhaps the most meaningful way to welcome the Year of the Dragon is for everyone to reimagine that free-flying dragon, soaring through a world where everyone can truly be themselves.
