Interactive Fur Trading Post
In 2014, in conjunction with the live Canada Roars presentation, we created a very successful pre-show activity – an interactive, hands on Fur Trading Post, (circa 1700’s) as part of the National Capital Commission’s Winterlude Family Day weekend.
We also recreated the event as part of our Spring 2014 school presentations and introduced the characters of Pierre-Esprit Radisson and Médard des Groseilliers
These vignettes, either as part of the larger Canada Roars presentation or as stand a-lone features, have enabled audiences to recognize Canada’s diverse and exceptional figures, places and accomplishments, enhanced knowledge and understanding of our shared history and values of Canada, and has provided opportunities for Canadians to participate in commemorative activities and celebrations.
