MONTREAL, NOVEMBER 18, 2013 – In addition to bringing teachers from across the Anglophone sector together, the annual 2013 QPAT Convention will mark the 5th anniversary of Spotlight on the Arts, which is set to run all-day on Friday, November 22 at the Palais de Congres (159 St. Antonie West).

The event, chaired by Melissa Ledo, the Pedagogical Consultant for the 4 Arts at the EMSB, will once again bring educators together for a day of insight which delves into the four arts: Visual Arts, Music, Dance and Drama.

As in past years, EMSB students will also take part the spotlight. Students will participate through the writing and performing of Slam Poetry, facilitated by acclaimed poet, Jason Selman. Following a day of work, they will present their poetry from 2:30 until 3:00. Additionally, other students will work throughout the day with an artist collective to create a collaborative mural.
