The ART of Social Justice is a dynamic educator-focused collaboration that meets the moment—with social justice at the forefront. It is the perfect one-stop-shop for lesson plans and resources, with pre-show discussions and discounted tickets at Two River Theater, featured exhibits at the T. Thomas Fortune Cultural Center, and a menu of writing workshops from Project Write Now designed specifically for educators.
The yearlong ART of Social Justice program kicks off this July with Summer Studio, providing educators with transformative experiences fusing writing, history, performance, and cultural awareness. We explore the intersectionality of race, gender, and class, and how educators can be agents of change not only in their own classrooms but also in the wider educational landscape.
During this four-day experience, you are immersed in interactive, hands-on workshops that:
– Allow you to engage in meaningful dialogue on social justice ideas
– Reignite the writer/artist within
– Help you discover and strengthen your voice for advocacy
– Build a supportive collaborative community
