Led by the teens of SKAI (Sagacious Kids Aiming to Inspire), this workshop will empower teens with the tools to write creatively.
The foundation for making your voice heard on the causes most important to you begins with our ability to use words knowledgeably and powerfully. The program will inspire you on the power of words; equip you with tools to write more powerfully and persuasively, and have you leave prepared to affect change on causes that touch your heart!
Highlights and key program take-aways:
A peer to peer program for teens
Writing is more than just words on a page. Journaling is more than venting your frustrations. It is the basis for change.
When you visually organize your thoughts, you can be a better activist
Our ability to transform our world depends on our ability to use words – because words structure action.
Writing and journaling allows for the exploratory safe space to determine your identity, examine the tensions you experience in the world, and come to a series of conclusions of who you want to be and what you want to do to change it.
We do not just know and we do not just have the language of freedom and equality. We must learn it. And we learn this by practice with language itself (a solely human phenomena). We would be naïve to think that as the only living beings in existence with language that we have mastered the art of words and symbols (the foundation of action).
The time we live in today requires bold knowledge and action. And it starts with creating the right base. Write for change.
Note for parents: if you would like to stay while your teen is attending the workshop, docent led tour of the museum will be available and you are welcome to experience our exhibit Behind The Bookcase.
