Credits: 1

In the midst of a global pandemic and the glaring issues of systemic racism and environmental injustice, our communities are grappling with a prolonged process of reckoning and healing. The ideas, methods and calls to action from artists such as Sekou Sundiata – New School educator and poet who argued for a radical re-imagining of America and our values in a post-911 world and the Brazilian theater activist Augusto Boal and organizations such as exalt, a NYC nonprofit which envisions an equitable future for court-involved youth -- can all inspire and motivate us to think beyond convention and norms to dismantle oppressive systems and step into innovative new ways of being, making, thinking and doing. This special weekend course will bring students from the New School together with court-involved students from exalt to collaborate on re-imagining school(s) of the future by creating short imaginative works and unique proposals which envision NYC schools post-Covid and into the 22nd Century.
