The Futures Project

 What Do We Want To Become?  

Over a week in June, a team of 30 educators and teaching artists convened to design ways for schooling to be joyful and engaging during the challenges of the pandemic.
These arts-integrated and community-based learning projects bring students and community members together to take action on the big challenges we face at this historic moment. 
Select a project to customize for your school and we will help you engage a teaching artist to support your project implementation.
