About Kevin Hicks:
Kevin Hicks is a decorated veteran soldier and policeman from England, recently moved to Canada to be closer to his family. Kevin has an amazing talent for inspiring people with his uncanny knack of making history fun, fascinating and relevant. He has a proven track record in TV, film making and in the theatre world. For the past 10 years, he also entertained audiences as the bowman at Warwick Castle. In recent years, he has been inspiring school children with engaging storytelling workshops through his business, History Squad.
StoryScapes is a nine-session program developed by Nutrien Wonderhub to engage children ages 3-12 years through a variety of storytelling methods. The intent of this program is to inspire children to look beyond the book when learning or telling stories.
Some examples of storytelling that we are looking for, but are not limited to, are music, song, dance, spoken word, visual arts, technology and traditions. Each session, a new method of storytelling will be introduced to participants through pre-registered/drop-in sessions.
The program sessions will take place at both the museum and external community centres. This enables the museum and storytellers to offer the program throughout the community in closer neighbourhoods for participants.
All sessions are designed to present an interesting and enjoyable experience that encourage participants to be curious and creative in with their own self-expression.
