Description

What's up for Creative Third Thursday in September?

We are headed to G.W. Graham Secondary School on Thursday, September 19 and Michael Florizone will be our host.

Michael is a Film and Visual Arts Teacher at G.W. Graham Secondary. He studied theatre and film and has also acted in film, television, radio and as a street performer. After spending time as an actor, he began working with youth at risk, and later taught drama to incarcerated youth in a maximum-security setting. Although he has jumped around in his career, his passion has always remained focused on the Arts.

He’s recently written and produced a short film and is excited to be working on a few other film projects. Last spring, Michael also created the first Chilliwack Student Film Festival, celebrating short films created by students from across Chilliwack, and he looks forward to continuing this next spring.

When Michael isn’t teaching, he loves to travel with his wife Wendy and son Finn. They just got back from a trip to the UK and Spain, and always look forward to experiencing new culture. This Fall will be Michael’s 12th year teaching in the Chilliwack School District.
