About the event

 Calling all teens and preteens! What’s the most important thing for students to learn at school? Reading, writing and arithmetic matter more than ever—but if you're unable to fully understand and regulate your feelings and emotions, it's difficult to focus on doing anything else.

The Miseducation of Self: An Art Inspired Healing Look at Self Awareness... uses Lauryn Hill's Miseducation album as a guide to create an experience allowing youth to explore and express their feelings and emotions in a safe space. Using 6 songs to build lessons around the 12 Stages of Healing, this program takes into account the importance of self awareness, and creates a forum for rehabilitation and restoration for our youth using music, activities, projects, discussions, and self expression. Pre-teens and teens have the flexibility to build from the stage of healing they are currently experiencing.

The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill tackles love lost and love found, distrust, pregnancy, and self-actualization. Trying to “figure it all out”—her project was seeped in feelings. She may be decades removed from that demographic now, but many can still reference that moment in time and apply it to their own pivotal life moments. This program has been created to allow this art form to teach and rehabilitate generations of all ages as we face this time of uncertainty. This 8 week program ends in as performance arts celebration of expression at Pan African Connection on July 25th!
