Why Creative Interventions
Since 2017, Rising Youth Theatre & the Demand to Learn campaign of the ACLU of Arizona have been working to shift the way we approach the alarming issue of student push-out by building power with young people and strengthening teacher & student relationships. We believe that a creative and relationship based practice is a major step towards changing the way young people engage with their education and the way education supports young people.
Spring 2023 Student and Teacher Cohort:
We are partnering with a cohort of 8 students and teachers in Spring 2023 to come together in a shared space of learning, organizing, and power building to end student pushout. Our learning series will cover topics like conflict & restorative justice, trust building, power & accountability and more as we build tools and creative interventions that can be implemented in the classroom immediately.
The cohort will co-design a professional development series based on their shared learning that will be shared with schools next year. Using creative interventions in facilitation, storytelling, visual art, movement, theatre, film, and more the cohort will build community, analysis, and action through:
This is a paid opportunity open to all young people ages 15-21 and all current adult classroom teachers, counselors, support specialists, and curriculum or behavioral coaches in the Phoenix metro valley area. We are looking for teachers that are committed to actively building with students. Black people, Indigenous people, and people of color are particularly encouraged to apply, as are LGBTQ people, womxn, people across the gender spectrum, people of all abilities, and people with creative practices training. No artistic or facilitation experience is necessary. Childcare is provided free of charge. The plan right now is for learning sessions to take place in person, though we will be flexible and ready to shift in response to the ongoing pandemic.
Sign up to be a part of this year's cohort! Deadline extended to February 24!
The 100th Day was an original theatre performance created by Rising Youth Theatre in partnership with ACLU Arizona's #Demand2Learn Campaign. The play takes place on the 100th Day of School, and examines the ways in which young people have access to education. The play centered around the core belief that all students in Maricopa County have the right to learn in safe and supportive environments and positions young people as leaders in exploring how this can become a reality for all Arizona youth.
