Branson Arts Council is proud to present an Australian Kaleidoscope to Buchanan and Cedar Ridge Elementary Schools in Branson, MO.

CULTURE MATTERS! Cultural Kaleidoscopes presentations expose students to other cultures in ways that create lasting impressions and understandings.  The world our students are entering is interconnected and diverse.

“Out of the Dreamtime” – From the only continent that is also a country comes “Australian Kaleidoscope” with Martin and Nellie Beggs from Sydney, New South Wales. The Program willl introduce students to both the young nation of Australia that was federated in 1901 and the ancient land of the indigenous aboriginal people who have lived there for at least 40,000 years.

Martin and Nellie will intertwine songs and stories with a multi-media presentation to give a look at the “Land Down Under” through the eyes of the original aboriginal inhabitants, the convicts sent to the “colony of New South Wales” and the very first European settlers who arrived in the 1700’s. These early explorers, farmers, shearers, cattlemen and miners brought their pioneering vigor to this fascinating land of the kangaroo, platypus and emu.

Soon, Shizuku’s exciting adventures carry her far beyond the boundaries of her imagination.
