Trying to figure it all out?
Can you identify how you feel?
How does how you feel effect you, your relationships, or how you see the world?
Can you identify the source of your emotions?
How you channel and release your emotions?
Do you know how to release or channel how you are feeling to feel better?
This is a chance for our youth to express themselves in whatever way feels natural in a safe space with other youth. During this time of uncertainty, all voices must be heard, and the voices of our youth certainly matter.
The Art Inspired Healing Collective presents, The Miseducation of Self: An Art Inspired Healing Look at Self Awareness... which 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, sponsored by The South Dallas Cultural Center. Using 6 songs to build lessons around the 12 Stages of Healing using deep breathing exercises to regulate the nervous system, this SEL 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. We will be using The Dallas City of Learning website for most of the content. There will be an open mic for all participants to present their expressions at The South Dallas Cultural Center. Pre-teens and teens have the flexibility to build from the stage of healing they are currently experiencing. The well-being of our youth matter, and this program is the forum.
We also offer an opportunity to create this expression hands on using art, music, or writing. Participants earning an Art Inspired Badge will have an opportunity to engage in a social outing following the program. (15 participants max)
