Artist’s Statement: I am a trained teaching artist in the Neighborhood Bridges critical literacy program, developed by the Children’s Theatre Company of Minneapolis. This nationally recognized program allows students to become the storytellers of their own lives by analyzing and interrogating myth, fairy tales, and folk tales from around the world. Students then write their own stories and produce short performances and play’s based on their creative work. Recognized by the federal government’s Department of Education as an effective model for arts education, CTC was awarded a grant to disseminate the program nationally. Our program has shown improved outcomes in ELA and creative and critical thinking for students in our local public schools.
