Our Stratford conference on October 19th was outstanding. Workshops in Drama and Dance for K-12 educators led by a Stratford artist and CODE board members centred on the theme Growing Your Soul. From Othello to Finding the Joy in Dance, participants filled their toolboxes with many new inspiring ideas and strategies.The conference was well attended, the weather was gorgeous, our vendor Marketplace was buzzing. Congratulations to our conference chairs, our Central West and Western Regional Coordinators who worked together: Cheri-Anne Byrne and Leslie Turcotte. Thank you to the committee supporting them, the team at Stratford and all the delegates who attended. This conference delivered what it promised: our souls grew.
