GET FREE: Unleashing Creativity to Create Radical Change

Tue, Feb 28, 2017

1:00pm ET - 2:00pm ET

Members Only

This event is for members only.

Dr. Bettina Love’s electrifying keynote address at the Guild’s 2016 Conference for Community Arts Education was a call to action to inspire young people into becoming creative, active, and engaged members of their communities. Dr. Love called on arts leaders not only to teach students about racial violence, oppression, but also how to bring sustainable change to their communities through innovative civic initiatives. Inspired by the underground Hip Hop movement, Dr. Love has become an expert on how the arts can expose youth to the possibilities that come with envisioning a world built on joy, radical love, and finding power in centering humanity. In this special, members-only video chat, participants will speak with Dr. Love and peers across the country about how to provide youth with the tools for understanding and working collectively to combat racial and social injustice. We encourage everyone to view Dr. Love’s full keynote address prior to the video chat!

She also concentrates on transforming urban classrooms through the use of non-traditional educational curricula and classroom structures.
