Hope and Healing through Arts Education

Recording: Hope and Healing through Arts Education, Date TBA

Disruptive and anti-social behaviors in youth have been linked to chronic stress and trauma arising from institutional racism, toxic environments and structural violence, which leave whole communities feeling traumatized and hopeless. Theory and practice have shown that providing spaces and opportunities for youth to heal, hope, imagine and create through youth development and engagement activities can be transformational and spark social change. This session will highlight an effective strategy at the nexus of health and arts education that is helping youth address some of today’s most pressing social issues.
