Up like... Thanks to the homies over at the @communitywordproject, I get to be apart of a wonderfully satisfying and deeply engaging immersive professional development workshop organized by Lincoln Center.
Today was only Day 1 and we’ve already activated all of our multiple intelligences. We drew up these fun portrait gifts for one another, discussed the history and definitions of teaching artistry across the past 40 plus years, unpacking the core capacities.
There was such an organic evolvement from these individual professional spaces we occupy towards a grander inclusive creative community. And, we got there unwittingly through wordplay, rhythm, movement, musicality and overall conversation.
We reflected on the creative process, safe versus brave spaces, the differences and overlap of Teaching Artist and Citizen Artist. ...
We sat up with Tarana Burke, the founder of #metoo and talked about how the campaign is not a woman’s movement, but a survivors movement. Lifting up all of the people who make this work possible, who do not exist in the limelight. And, that we must measure success by the person who has the least.
And, of course, I met some light-bearers ready to raise up our ancestors along the way. ...
I just wanna give thanks for this moment in time. So I’m sending out a Thank You and a good night. Bless.
Thank YOUS from Grover Cleveland Mastery Charter School Career Day.... I feel like my contribution to the world of arts education & learning is just beginning. I’m constantly looking for ways to teach, learn, grow, share ideas, be challenged, critique one another, create, & more.... I know a lot of awesome creatives here in Philly who are all trying to do the same thing. We’re all busy creating the lives we want to live & experience, which is AWESOME. Let’s not forget how we as creatives have a responsibility to engage the next generation. Let’s figure out ways to bypass antiquated structures, and offer new forms of learning & engagement. The best part about innovative education, is it serves both the student & the teacher. I’m looking to connect with more sustainable & creative arts education models here in Philly. Who here is already doing work with youth organizations looking to cross pollinate with other creatives, educators, & innovators? Who else should I know about in Philly pushing boundaries & offering great arts education programming? -
Thanks to Danielle Mancinelli for having me out🙏🏽 Thanks to @newleaderscouncil

Purchase your tickets by CLICKING THE LINK IN OUR BIO ❤️
Afflicted: Daughters of Salem tells the story of the Salem girls—Abigail Williams, the leader, Ann Putnam, Mercy Lewis, Mary Warren and Betty Parris, and the crucible of events that led up to the infamous Salem Witch Trials. Denied all outlets for imagination and all hope for the future, the girls unite in a secret society, forcing Tituba, a slave, to tell their fortunes in secret, at night, deep in the dark woods of Puritan New England. Allies are found, promises made and broken, power taken. Through their secrets, gossip and accusations these girls become some of the most notorious teens in history. #phantomprojects#lathtr#lamiradatheatre#theatregroup#artseducation#livetheatre#afflicteddaughtersofsalem#orangecounty

Everything I own is about to be red. 🤦🏼♀️ Is it weird that I’m more reluctant to let my two-year-old use the paints than a hammer? But sometimes there’s just no better way to bring his creations to life. How often do you let your little ones into the paint? Any mom hacks you care to share?? #makermonkeyworkshop#topaintornottopaint#kidscanbuild
I’ve been off here but I’ve been busy! This week I will install my thesis exhibition for my MA program at MICA, submit final writing assignments and prepare for my thesis talk next week. It’s been a crazy year but I’m still enjoying all the beautiful moments like the view from my dorm (yes... back to college means dorms!). More to come soon! #artseducation#gradschool
Save the date!
CAPA Cabaret 2019 will be held at @unionproject on February 9th, 2019! We are very excited to partner with Union Project for this fundraiser. Their mission of ‘using art to bridge communities’ is exactly what we hope CAPA Cabaret accomplishes.
Be sure you join us this Thursday for the Idea Lounge with Daedalus Howell & Heidi Wright! The audience will uncover whatever the speakers have in common, while discovering connections between the practice of art and the day-to-day experiences of life. Filmmaker Daedalus Howell will be speaking for Art, with a talk entitled “On Location in Petaluma: When Your Hometown is Your Movie Back Lot,” and costumer Heidi Wright, with a talk is titled “Costume Shop Chronicles.”

The past 2 weeks I have been working through the @kylaroma minimalist marketing plan challenge. And making kimchi! Trying to map a metaphor, bear with me as it's rusty but... no such thing as perfect, right? Metaphors are a great way to embed learning into the neural pathways. *
* Building a marketing plan, for me, feels kind of like cooking: what kind of dish/product will I make and who am I sharing it with (screenprinting workshops and masterminds)? What ingredients/natural skills do I have on hand (an abundance of bok choy from the farm/lots of connections in my community)? How will I share what I have made (jars of kimchi to friends, put it in pancakes, stirfry/instagram, fb, email)... Where do I keep my recipes to see what worked and what didn't? (i would use less ginger next time/use excel to track results and maybe open up a waiting list for my classes as a soft launch). *
*Much like the time i set aside to make the kimchi, I take a day to write a thoughtful monthly email with natural systems quotes, arts events, PD, and stories from the field to build an powerhouse sector of artists, arts educators, program coordinators, teachers, parents, and freelance creatives. See what the buzz is about and hop over to my bio to sign up! #minimalistmarketingplan#ygkarts#ygk#ygkyouth#kingston#ldsb#artseducation#freelance#inspired#onlinelearning
