Who's Who
Creative Project Think Tank
Over a week in June, a team of educators and teaching artists convened to design ways to start school in the fall with joyful and engaging learning projects that bring students and community members together to take action on the big challenges we face at this historic moment. 
These projects are the result of their creative imaginings.
