Southside Speaks!

SOUTHSIDE SPEAKS 

A CELEBRATION OF THE YOUNG VOICES OF THE SOUTHSIDE
& ¡CITYARTS!’S PARTNERSHIP WITH ROGER WILLIAMS MIDDLE SCHOOL

Come hear the young voices of Providence’ Southside! We’re presenting work by students at Roger Williams Middle School created during two key arts integration projects with ¡CityArts!’s AmeriCorps Expanded Day Teaching Artist Project!

THE BELOVED REVOLUTION   How can middle-schoolers become ambassadors for nonviolence in their daily lives and buld the ideals of Dr. Martin Luther King’s Beloved Community? EDTAP members Vanessa DeNino and Victoria Rey have teamed up with ISPN Peacemakers Jose Maldonado and Starria Sumner to explore Dr. King’s six principles of nonviolence using original video, dance, and visual art – prompting students to think about ways they can positively influence their communities through nonviolence and creativity.

THE IDENTITY PROJECT   We did it, and you made it happen! We’ve self published a book of photographs and poetry from The Identity Project, a vibrant and moving exploration of the personal narratives of RWMS’s bilingual, multicultural students led by 2011-2012 EDTAP member Alesandra Zsiba. Join us to celebrate the unveiling of the book – we’ll even be presenting copies of the book to some of the participating poets themselves!
