How did the Dream Big School Tour evolve?
The Dream Big School Tour was established in 2014 with the primary purpose of being a traveling forum that could provide information to student, (at both the high school and college level), about careers available in the arts and entertainment sector. It was a result of us wanting to do more than just produce a festival. We were looking for ways to engage our audience and educate them throughout the year.
Since 2014 we have introduced the program to roughly a hundred schools throughout the nation, and reached out to more than 50,000 students over that time period.
Last year we made vast changes to the program, by condensing a one day conference format into sixty minutes. It’s a far more exciting, interactive set which features live performances, panel discussions, competitive challenges, and prizes and giveaways, sure to keep students “stoked” at every step of the way.
Our goal this year has been to visit between 20-30 academic institutions, which can accommodate a seating capacity of 400 plus students, allowing us to spread the word to more than 10,000 students by April 2019.
The School Tour will culminate in a 2 day expo which will take place on May 3rd and 4th, 2019, at the Centre of Excellence, in which over 3500 students will be facilitated to participate in the largest career day weekend ever produced on the island.
