Raising Socially Conscious and Conscientious Youth

Sep 13, 2017, 6:30 pm

This ACME session presented by the Utah Museum of Fine Arts is centered on building inclusive and socially just communities by inspiring our youth. We will focus on ways to create spaces for youth to cultivate positive cultural identities, enhance empathy through deep awareness, and nurture their power of belief.
Session leaders will guide participants in three projects while addressing the following questions: How can children's early understanding of race, gender, and other social identities shape how they feel about who they are and who they can become? What do youth discover when they are encouraged to slow down and use all of their senses? How do we encourage children to leverage hope and belief to build the world they want to live in? People of all ages encouraged to attend.

This program is funded in part by a UH Competitive Grant.
