Event Details

Date: Saturday, January 23rd, 2016
Time: 9:00 AM- 1:00 PM
Notes: Children Welcome!

Participants explore the “other sides” of their personal and collective stories through creative experiences—these stories have the power to touch others, build understanding, and restore ourselves and the world. Designed for teachers and families, including children of any age.

Since 2009, the Academy’s El Otro Lado in the Schools program has brought teachers, artists, and students together to access and share their stories. Each week, participants use journaling, recorded oral narratives, photography, visual arts, music, and movement to learn together. This learning expands within the classroom as teachers adapt these methods to other areas of teaching, and extends beyond the classroom as participants present their stories and art in a community culmination and celebration at the end of the school year.
