We’ve been planning excitedly for the last couple of months and finally, the time has come – this week we are heading overseas to Canada for some Project Wild Thing activity! After touring alone for the last year, we (Ash and David) are now heading off on our first wild trip together to the land of ultimate wildlife and meter deep snow. We’re really looking forward to an unforgettable trip.
So what will we be doing there and where can you find us?
We’ll be arriving in Calgary on Wednesday 19th November and will begin preparations for the official Canadian premiere of Project Wild Thing at the Marda Loop Justice Film Festival, which takes place on Saturday 22nd November at 3.25pm. We’ll be taking part in a Q&A panel after the film, featuring two locals from a local forest kindergarten and Deb Doncaster from Earth Day Canada. This is a unique opportunity to catch us together talking about the film and it’s incredible impact in the UK. Please do come along and introduce yourself! You can check the location of the screening and see more information about the event here.
The following week, after a bit of Wild Time in the mountains and a trip to the breath-taking Banff, we’ll head to Toronto for an exclusive Earth Day Canada screening on Wednesday 26th November. If you are based in or around Toronto, please join us at the Daniels Spectrum Theatre at 7pm. We’d love to meet you and chat about the issues raised in the film and how we can spread the Wild Thing message in Canada.
We’d like to say a big thank you to Earth Day Canada, who are kindly sponsoring this trip and have worked very hard to make the Toronto screening a reality. As well as establishing the largest environmental event in the world on April 22nd each year, Earth Day Canada support teachers and students by providing them with Canada’s leading environmental education program, EcoKids. They are a passionate charity who are very deeply motivated by reconnecting children with nature and play and we’re thrilled to be working with them.
If you can’t make either of the events above but would like to meet us while we’re in Canada, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
P.S – Last time we checked it was -26° in the mountains. Brr.
