STUDENTS AGAINST HATE

UNITED BY LOVE

Educational Program

During the months of April and May 2021, LunART will be teaming up with the Middleton-Cross Plains School District to present STUDENTS AGAINST HATE UNITED BY LOVE, a virtual pilot workshop series exploring the roles of art and activism. Fully virtual 5th grade students at Kromrey and Glacier Creek Middle Schools will learn how to use their artistic voices to shout out loud about love, delving into themes of justice and human rights through poetry, storytelling, and visual art. 

 

Madison artist and activist Kelly Parks Snider, whose work appeared in our 2019 festival, will guide the students in the creation of a self-portrait using painting and print-making techniques. Additionally, students will hear from guest poets Fabu Phillis Carter (Madison poet laureate) and Jamie Dawson, who were featured in LunART’s HUMAN FAMILY Virtual Festival.  

 

STUDENTS AGAINST HATE UNITED BY LOVE will culminate in an outdoor livestreamed “pop-up” art exhibit on Friday, May 21, 5-7pm, in which students will have the opportunity to share their writing and participate in “art talks.” 

 

PROJECT GOALS:

  • To engage young people and increase leadership opportunities

  • To amplify youth voices working to break down barriers and current hate rhetoric directed at immigrant communities, racial and religious minorities and other marginalized groups

  • To provide students with an adaptable roadmap which aids development of a more cohesive school community

  • To inspire self-reflection, increase understanding and create student-led social change

  • To introduce students to new avenues for their creativity and artistic self-expression

  • To foster a young generation which values arts and culture, and their benefits to the community
