Youth Education Debut Presentations: June 2018

Youth Education Debut Presentations: June 2018

We have several Youth Education debut presentations approaching! From the Department of Education’s discipline code in the Bronx to NYC’s “sanctuary city” policies in Bushwick, students have been investigating vital questions about how our city works. In these projects, students collaborated with Teaching Artists and CUP to examine a social justice issue impacting their community, interview key stakeholders, use design and art to break down complex information, and create visual tools that teach others about the issue.

Join us as the students celebrate the culmination of all their hard work, present their final products, and reflect on their creative process. All the events are free and open to the public.

If you would like to attend any of these events, please RSVP to rsvp@welcometocup.org to reserve your spot. Please specify which event(s) you will attend.

Check out a list of the events below. Hope to see you there!
