SJAMboree 2016

Dramatic Changes joins the SJAMboree 2016

Ross Unger and Katie MacDonald of Dramatic Changes were invited to participate as facilitators in the 2016 SJAMboree at Africville Park.

To prepare for the project, they went to St Joseph’s A. McKay elementary and interviewed the kids and staff about their school and community. Based on these interviews they wrote a song.

“The vision behind the song was to foster community identity and unity through song; A celebration of what it means to be a part of the SJAM community for all to sing”

On June 27th, they taught this song to the whole school in groups of 20 at a time, and the whole school sang it together at the closing of the SJAMboree.

Here is a short video documenting the process:
