Creative Communities are Thriving Communities
We believe in the transformative power of creativity, innate in all people, and in its flexibility to be guided into activities that create lasting change.
PROJECT DESIGN LAB
July 11-14 / Burlington
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN
How can activating the creativity of my students build the foundations of well-being for a more inclusive, joyful and caring learning environment?
K-12 educators are invited to collaborate with a teaching artist to design a project that uses creative engagement – making things we care about – as a powerful tool for meaning-making, relationship building, and understanding who we are; these are vital components of individual and community well-being.
WHAT IS CULTURAL EQUITY?
Acknowledging and challenging our inequities and working in partnership is how we will make change happen.
To support a full creative life for all, Community Engagement Lab commits to championing policies and practices of racial and cultural equity that build more just, inclusive, equitable and thriving communities.
We bring people of all ages together in projects that activate their creativity to imagine and build more just and thriving communities.
