changing identity narratives through creativity

This educational program focuses on three main questions:

  • How can we use art to claim our stories? 

  • How can we break down barriers of difference?

  • How does art develop stronger communication and understanding?

Lack of narrative arts in education creates a vacuum of empathy. Using narrative art and creative storytelling, we can strengthen both our interpersonal relationships and personal identities by putting our own stories into the world – and listening to the stories of others.
