Exciting news! We recently held the inaugural sessions of our new Creative Reuse Educator Empowerment Program! For this initial run of our educator workshop series, we partnered with 11 educators from a diversity of settings. Over the course of two full-day workshops, we emphasized the power and importance of reuse in education. Participants were able to explore and share ideas through hands-on making activities, as well as discussion, and presentations from Creative Reuse teaching artists. Throughout the fall, we will continue to collaborate with our educator participants on site at their teaching environments. Stay tuned for updates!
This program was made possible by the generous support of the Grable Foundation.
