Agenda Item #29


Title
Consultant Agreement with Didgeridoo Down Under

Discussion
Cape View is seeking approval for Didgeridoo Down Under to perform at their school on May 14, 2014.  Didgeridoo Down Under is a cross-curricular, arts-integrated program that combines music, culture, character building as well as anti-bullying while teaching about Australia.  Didgeridoo Down Under will present two shows for the students during the school day, one for primary, one for intermediate, and the third performance is for the parents and community that same evening.  In addition to the performances, 40 students will be chosen to attend a workshop with the artist to actually learn to play the didgeridoo.  These students will be featured at the evening performance given for the community.  The programs being presented by Didgeridoo will coincide with Cape View's annual Celebration of Learning Event.  During the event each grade level will also be showcasing projects about Australia that will be studied during the months of April and May.  Each student will have the opportunity to make their own didgeridoo to play and keep after the event.  The cost for the three presentations is $1800.00 The cost includes transportation, food and hotel stay. The funding comes from a Target Grant written specifically for cultural experiences.
