Event Details

Providing Voice to Students Who are Often Unheard

 

¡Óyeme! (which means hear me in Spanish) strives to provide a creative arts outlet for young people, utilizing best practice culturally-based, trauma-informed theatre and arts activities to create a sense of community among the participants, and provide a safe space for immigrant youth to share their stories.   Learn the techniques for using theatre as a tool for creating a safe space in your classroom, as a vehicle to share stories, and how it can promote language development.  This workshop will be led by Director Elena Velasco and Imagination Stage Director of Education Joanne Seelig Lamparter.  It will explore themes of the play Oyeme based on the stories of refugee youth and provide hands on activities that teachers and community leaders can bring back to their students.
