Calendar Event

Working in Community to Make Community Work co-hosted by the Tarrant Institute & the Community Engagement Lab

Apr 28, 2021
4:00 pm to 5:30 pm

Join us in exploring how we can work in community to make community- centered-education work. Together we¿ll explore this question:

"How do we design and implement creative community-engaged projects that strengthen student agency, promote community connectedness, and inspire system change?"

The Community Team at Windsor High School, in Windsor VT will present on how they believe their Portrait of a Graduate expectations can be supported by engaging in the Vermont Mural Project with the whole school exploring the essential questions of "Who are we?" and "Who do we want to become?"

Workshop participants will learn about community-centered educational systems such as the Vermont Mural Project, as well as gaining inspiration, and contributing ideas and feedback for the team at Windsor to use to make their project better. Educators will receive 1.5 hours recertification credits.

Presenters: Keighan Eaker, Christie Keeney, Kim Gogan (Windsor HS)
Facilitators: Susan Hennessey, Life LeGeros, Paul Gambil, and Eric Booth.

This workshop is an initiative of the Vermont Community Learning Network (VCLN) & co-presented by the Community Engagement Lab & the UVM Tarrant Institute, with underwriting from National Endowment for the Arts.

The Vermont Community Learning Network (VCLN) is bringing together community teams for a series of three workshops to share their current progress on the Vermont Mural Project and explore how this creative community-engaged project acts as a catalyst for system change.

During each workshop, one team will share a related focus question that is specific to the opportunities and dilemmas of their community engagement and system-change work.
