Week Two: Arts in the Movement

ImageThe second week of YOI is off to a great start! The participants learned and discussed the STPP (School To Prison Pipeline) along with their experiences that connect to it. They also learned about arts in the movement and different ways it can form. The Moves of Resistance was taught by Matthias from Spirit House. The moves of resistance came from a scene in the play Collective Sun, which was performed by Spirit House. As an energizer after lunch the participants formed interpretive ways to represent power over and power with which was a way to get the creativity flowing for the day. CJ from Sacrificial Poets directed the last workshop of the day which focused on the importance of story telling and telling our own stories through poetry. Rafi who is one of the participants stated “This was my favorite day so far, the institute keeps getting better and better as the days go by” we look forward to building on previous sessions and knowledge as we move forward!
