MPUE Projects

Manitoba Parents for Ukrainian Education supports special projects that celebrate milestones in our English-Ukrainian Bilingual Program and larger Ukrainian Community. Over the years, MPUE has worked to coordinate a number of inter-school projects which have included concerts, recording projects, art projects, a documentary and archival project, just to name a few. We are pleased to share information about these special projects.

40th Anniversary Documentary

“Language, Culture, Community – 40 Years of Manitoba’s Ukrainian Bilingual Program”. This project was initiated in celebration of the 40th year of the English-Ukrainian Bilingual Program in Manitoba. The documentary delves into the educational benefits of language learning, the importance of community and creation of global citizens, founders of the EUBP and right to language, multigenerational appeal of the program and Manitoba Parents for Ukrainian Education and the Osvita Foundation’s continued support the EUBP.
200 Years of Taras Shevchenko Art Panel

In 2014, as recognition and celebration of 200 years since Shevchenko’s birth, MPUE engaged 5 Artists to lead an art project that would span all grade levels throughout the 12 English Ukrainian Bilingual Program (EUBP) schools in Manitoba. Students worked under the guidance of the commissioned artists to collaborate and create a child’s interpretation of Taras Shevchenko’s significant contributions to Ukrainian cultural identity. The children were asked to base their images on the 3 different themes:

  • Kindergarten to Grade 2/3 – Taras Shevchenko’s Birthplace
  • Grade 3 to 5/6 – An Illustration Based on Taras Shevchenko’s Writings
  • Grade 6 to 8/9 – What Taras Shevchenko Stood For

The artist worked with the individual schools, students and teachers and expressed the work in the fabric based medium of their choice. It is our hope that this opportunity for artistic expression by the children has reinforced their understanding of Taras Shevchenko as an important influence on Ukrainian culture.
