CRN: 10680

Credits: 4

In this Civic Liberal Arts (CLA) course students will explore the connection between engaged theater and critical issues of Environmental Justice. They will delve into transformative arts education methods that work to build Climate Citizenship & Resilience in New York City communities. In Monday seminar sessions, students will be exposed to seminal arts education practitioners. On Wednesdays, students will participate in running an Afterschool Theater Program at the ‘I HAVE A DREAM’- Chelsea III Program at P.S. 33. With their elementary school students, the class will collaboratively create theater pieces which explore themes of Environmental Justice, Sustainability and Climate Citizenship which will be shared at the end of the semester with IHD Chelsea III families. Students will also develop their own curriculum proposals for a future Eco Justice/Climate Citizenship course. In this special CLA seminar, students will also work with NYC Eco Justice Organizations including the Superhero Clubhouse, Big Green Theater, and Urban Word.
