The Christmas Wind Visualization Project

To watch a 5 minute video that explains The Christmas Wind Story Project and how it works, click the button below at top right that says: “The Christmas Wind Radio Show Story Project Introduction”

NOTE: I’ve variously called this project The Christmas Wind Visualization Project, The Christmas Wind Radio Show Story Project and the WIND Project – these terms all refer to the same program

Over 1,000 students from B.C. to Labrador took part in a pilot version of this program earlier this year. Not only did they create some wonderful artwork, but teachers fed back how valuable they felt the process was for their students as it challenged them to access visualization and imagination skills that aren’t necessarily tapped by the whirlwind of our digital world. More than that, the students fell in love with the process and the story and were provided a unique opportunity to communicate with an author over the period of the program in a variety of ways: email, audio voice messages, letters, website comments, etc.

The media got wind of the project in several cities. Click on any of the buttons below to hear the radio coverage (in Makkovik, Labrador) or read the articles in several cities.
