Nurturing Compassionate Global Citizens through the Arts

Rebecca Bernard, World City Center

How can we use the arts as a tool for actively exploring and nurturing points of connectivity across cultures? How can the arts be employed to build self identity, democratic agency, and provide children with an outlet for expression and engagement with the world beyond? This session will share insights and lessons learned while building arts based programs in Los Angeles that promote self realization and celebrate diversity, offering educators and community members a lens for “globalizing” their teaching supported by practical tools that help children engage and transform their worlds at both the local and global levels.
