CIVICKIDS Celebration

CIVICKIDS Celebration

Description

Join the Children's Museum of the Art on Sunday, October 20 for a celebration of child-led civic engagement! CMA is partnering with artist-run civic engagement platform For Freedoms to present interactive workshops inspired by a year of amplifying children’s voices and catching them in action. From September 2018—August 2019, CMA led an initiative called CIVICKIDS, a year-long venture in implementing and disseminating curriculum designed to initiate conversations surrounding civic engagement with children and families. We identified 12 themes for each month of CIVICKIDS. During each month, our onsite programming related to CIVICKIDS, and we also asked partners working with children from all over the world to reflect with us. In addition, we hosted offsite workshops in all of NYC’s five boroughs. Through the process of working with children, families, and organizations near and far, we learned about how children see themselves in the world, the issues they face, and the future they want to inherit. Come celebrate what we’ve learned over the past year, as we continue our journey to Make Art, Make a Difference. https://cmany.org/classes-and-activities/events/civickids-celebration/
