Arts @ Large Student Teams are groups of young people that are using the arts to make a positive change in their school, community and world.
Students. Creating. Change.
Student Teams meet regularly with an Arts @ Large facilitator and/or a Teacher Advisor to discuss issues that are important to them and their peers then brainstorm ways in which they can use the arts to address those issues.
Tips on forming a Student Team at your school:
In partnership with the Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities, Arts @ Large will be accepting applications for projects that teach altruism while engaging youth in creative expression through the arts.
Student Teams can submit an application for a $500 mini-grant that includes:
• Name of Teacher Advisor
• Description of the project (full application below)
• How this project will have a positive effect on their school, community or world
• Proposed budget for the project
• List of Students involved with the project
• Principal's signature
Please contact Ryan Hurley, Program Coordinator for Arts @ Large, with any questions or to request a visit that will help your school initiate a Student Team. email@example.com or 414.763.7379
RESOURCES FOR STUDENT TEAMS
Story School Student Team's Anti-Bullying Project
As a part of the Arts @ Large Program, Albert Story's Student Team wanted to address violence and bullying in their community through the arts. They worked with Center for Applied Theatre's Mark Weinberg to develop their own script and MediaMaker's Susan Borri to learn the art of videography. The Student Team then performed their live piece coupled with this video to engage in school-wide dialogue about violence and bullying. NOTE: This video was created to spark dialogue about school violence and should be accompanied by the supplemental documents below.
