Humphrey Nature Trails:
Creative Community Happens Here

Whispering River Music’s Creative Communities project is based on an old storyteller’s saying:

“When you tell one story, you should always tell two. That way the stories will lean on each other”.

The first of these, the “Humphrey Nature Trails: Creative Community Happens Here” project, invites families and community members to tell their own stories in response to twelve Covid-19 art installations along Rabbit Run Trail built by the students of Humphrey Public School.

Each station has a question about personal response to the pandemic generated by the  grade 6 class. 

Twelve Questions:

1 - Where have you found joy this year? What can you still do that makes you happy?

2 - Did you enjoy parts of the lockdown?

3 - Where have you found boredom?

4 - Have you been more creative? What have you created?

5 - How have you connected with family and friends? Where have you found comfort?

6 - Have you found yourself lazier?

7 - Where have you experienced frustration?

8 - How has Covid-19 affected your life? Have you learned anything from the experience?

9 - Where have you experienced sadness?

10 - What have you lost? What have you found?

11 - Have you been angry?

12 - What are you grateful for?

Get involved!
