Students from the Westminster Schools, the International Community School, and Carver School of the Arts recently collaborated on a film project that served as a celebration of their involvement in the Embracing Differences public art initiative.
The film was received well by the National Youth Leadership Council, who has asked permission for it to be used in their plenary session at the National Service Learning Conference this spring. Claire Tutu, daughter of Bishop Desmond Tutu, who will be hosting a Gathering of Civil Rights Elders in April, has also asked permission for the film to be used at this inter-generational forum. 20 student artists who participated in the Embracing Differences initiative have been invited to attend this event.
Clearly, the repercussions of this initiative are continuing to unfold. Check out what Bo Adams, Head of Westminster Junior High School posted on his blog, after attending an Embracing Differences assembly today. Hope it gives other schools involved in the initiative ideas for ways they can share the project with their school community.
