Every Day, Every Way: Arts-Focused Youth Programming in Afterschool Mini-Conference

  • African American Art and Culture Complex 762 Fulton Street San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)

San Francisco communities continue to strain under the effects of gentrification. Who gets to determine neighborhood identity? What role can youth-serving organizations play?

We gather together a cross section of organizations to connect with each other and develop our beliefs, methods and practices in service of youth culture.

The Studio Pathways team developed Rise Up! An American Curriculum inspired by Hamilton: An American Musical, they co-created the curriculum to accompany Ava DuVernay's "National Day of Racial Healing", co-created the Othering and Belonging Curriculum for the UC Berkeley Haas Institute for a Fair and Just Society, and conducted advocacy and policy work with Create Justice program at Carnegie Hall. These are education superstars. You might not get another chance to learn from them in such an intimate setting.

Be a presenter. Six people will be selected to each give a 5 minute slide show (or video) of artwork created by their students in an after school or community setting. Each presenter will receive an honorarium of $50. Apply here.
