The Word On The Street Learning Tent hosts family-friendly literacy programming
TORONTO, August 19, 2015 —– The Word On The Street Toronto is dedicated to the promotion of local literacy organizations. The festival shows its support each year by providing free exhibit space to 20 literacy groups in its Exhibitor Marketplace to help them promote their programs, attract new tutors and volunteers, and raise funds.
The Word On The Street is partnering with seven community groups to program the Learning Tent. The Learning Tent is a family-friendly destination where experts in the fields of literacy and education will share informative and entertaining activities, and introduce the public to a range of community literacy projects.
The Word On The Street is pleased to announce that its Literacy Programming Partners for the 2015 festival are ONBIDA (the Ontario branch of the International Dyslexia Association), Frontier College, Vallum Society for Education in Arts and Letters, Ontario Science Centre, The Ontario Cultural Society of the Deaf (OCSD) and Silent Voice, and First Book Canada.
