Teacher Workshop: Embodied Narratives

Monday, January 20, 2020

9:30 am–12:30 pm

Meet in the Education Studios, 1st Floor

Join us for our annual day of action in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, with two professional development workshops for educators. Develop critical strategies for unpacking narratives in antiracist teaching and explore how counternarratives, power sharing, and art-making techniques can support teaching for racial justice.

In the morning workshop, artist, educator, and activist Una Aya Osato builds on themes in her one-woman show RECESS—which considers schooling from the perspective of seven-year-olds in New York City—to explore embodied narratives. Through movement, writing, and guided discussion, Osato leads participants in reflecting on stories they hold about themselves, their work, and their students in order to develop pluralistic approaches to storytelling that can shift dominant narratives in the classroom.

The day of action continues with our afternoon workshop, Curating as Counternarrative.

Registration is $30 for one workshop; or $60 for the full day, which includes both workshops and a catered lunch. Members receive 10% off. Email membership@brooklynmuseum.org or call 718.501.6326 for your required Membership promotional code. Not a Member? Join today!
