Teacher Workshop: Curating as Counternarrative

Monday, January 20, 2020

1:30–4:30 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 afternoon workshop, educators Dalila Scruggs and Keonna Hendrick draw on curatorial methods that can be used with students to craft counternarratives in the classroom. Learn strategies to leverage the curatorial process—from identifying salient themes to organizing historical and contemporary material into cohesive projects—to help students use artistic practices as a tool for visualizing more equitable futures.

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!
