The Jellyfish Project is an educational and environmental initiative that uses the power of live music and performance to support younger generations of active citizens and is performing for schools across the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island this October.
VANCOUVER – Two of The Jellyfish Project’s bands, Mindil Beach and Carmanah are setting off on tour to inspire youth to become environmental stewards.
Oct 16th – Mindil Beach @ Pitt River Middle School – Port Coquitlam
Oct 19th – Carmanah @ Mt. Doug Secondary School – Victoria
Oct 21 – Mindil Beach @ King George Secondary School – Vancouver
Oct 22 – Mindil Beach @ Maple Creek Middle School – Port Coquitlam
The format of the School Presentation Program is simple: one school assembly, one rock music performance, and one message – the world’s oceans and climate are in trouble. Musicians discuss how young people can contribute to solutions. So far this format has reached over 55,000 students at 106 schools across the country. The Jellyfish Project is preparing for a Fall Tour in British Columbia and will expand to other schools throughout BC, Alberta, and beyond in 2016. To book a presentation at a school near you or for more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
“In my twenty-three years as an educator, I have rarely seen a presentation and organization as powerful and forward-thinking as The Jellyfish Project…Their leading-edge presentation, combining inspiring music and well-researched information, has evolved into an incredible support for the young people.” - Mark Neufeld, B Ed. MSc. Institute for Global Solutions
“They are role models who are exciting, approachable and engaging. These artists are a pleasure to watch, but also to interact with and it will be a pleasure for you to watch the students viewing this program connect to these talented professional artists and the environmental messages that they carry.” - Judy Fainstein, Youth for Environmental Stewardship, British Columbia
Mindil Beach is currently participating in the Peak Performance Project and Carmanah recently returned from a cross-Canada tour in a vegetable oil-fueled van. In addition to these projects, our artists are dedicated to sharing environmental messages and solutions with youth. View The Jellyfish Project’s Promo video here: https://youtu.be/cSlpJwRz7g0
