Join the Eliot School Salon Series for a compelling and nuanced conversation about “Talking to Kids About Race, Justice, and Their Power Using Art” with Tanya Nixon-Silberg, Founder of Little Uprisings and co-founder of Wee the People, as well as Zahirah Nur Truth, ZNT ARTS Teaching Artist and Arts Education Consultant. The conversation will be moderated by Alison Croney Moses, Program Director, The Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts. Finally, respondent Innosanto Nagara, activist, graphic designer, author and founder of Design Action Collective, will then set the scene for an open audience Q&A.
Our conversation amplifies the voices of two educators who are actively engaging with young people and the adults who help mold them. How do we get folks to think about preparing our young people while helping to transform the culture and the systems that they participate in to be more nurturing and affirming? Young people are talking, they're sharing their experiences about their identities, about their interpretation of what's happening around them. How do we as adults really listen?
