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.
