Workshops in the arts for youth have been a staple of beheard.world’s community work since 2010. Now partnering with Sankofa Arts, we create safe learning spaces, implementing holistic workshops in small and large classrooms, during assemblies, as part of extracurricular offerings, with sports teams, as part of faculty and staff team building, and community/cultural celebrations. The workshops can vary from half-day to two-day, to semester-long. Our team includes educators, artists, a clinical therapist, music therapists, all who are trained group facilitators.
The themes of these workshops are often student and faculty driven and given in the context of the communities served with a focus on truth, justice and reconciliation. Our beheard.world artists have implemented highly successful one-day to seven-week workshops for teenagers, as well as seamlessly taught classes at public and private schools, housing developments and in afterschool programs from Boston to Baltimore.
