Empowered Educators – Down on Paper

Carnegie Museum of Art

Join educators, artists, field professionals, and museum staff during the ongoing Empowered Educators program as we deepen our knowledge and understanding of topics critical to our lives. All Empowered Educator sessions are participatory in nature and explore the intersection of visual art, literature, and personal writing through group conversations with artists and guest speakers. This series is rooted in Race Talk and encourages participants in their journey to build a more equitable and just world.

This session encourages creativity and critical thinking through writing and art-making to imagine a just world where inequalities have been eradicated. Explore the galleries through a writing marathon and work with teaching artists to create a collage. Not sure what a writing marathon or collage making entails? Come learn with us! All experience levels are welcome.

This free workshop will take place in the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh Boardroom and the galleries. Please register below. Carnegie Museum of Art will provide dinner and waive the parking fee for each participant.

About Empowered Educators:

Empowered Educators is a forum where educators discuss issues of race, equality, and bias through visual art, literature, and personal writing and reflection. The primary objective of Empowered Educators is to build a community of informed teachers as learners who benefit from resources and an exchange of ideas with guest experts and each other to better serve Western Pennsylvania's students. Carnegie Museum of Art is pleased to partner with the Western Pennsylvania Writing Center, the Center for Urban Education at Pitt, and the PittEd Justice Collective to make this program possible.
