Learning Resources

VIDEA has produced a range of globally-focused learning resources over the last 38 years, covering a variety of topics from global warming, to access to education, to the future of our forests to gender equality.

Previously, we have also been proud to partner with Will Weigler and the Inter-Cultural Association on "From the Heart" - an unconventional theater piece about reconciliation in the summer of 2013. "From the Heart" was co-created by an inter-generational culturally diverse group of 30 people who were then joined by another 70 to perform it once the script was ready. All 120 performances were sold out and the show went on to win Best New Play of the season from the Victoria Critic’s Choice Spotlight Awards. For more information on the project, you can purchase the book "From the Heart: How 100 Canadians Created an Unconventional Theater Performance about Reconciliation" here.
