The Cartwheel Initiative, an organization that delivers free, hands-on art workshops to young people who are displaced from their families and homes due to violence, met with CMA this week for the first session of our 2015 fall partnership, “I Have A Voice.” Students from the International High School in Union Square got to know each other and discussed the plans for our six-week collaboration, during which each student will express his or her journey from their home countries to the United States through photography and stop motion animation. We talked about the meaning of ‘home’ and the many images that represent it.
Everyone was engaged and ready to go! We are incredibly excited to work with such an inspiring group of students. Next week we will jump into hands on animation and begin to tell our students’ incredible stories. Stay tuned for more…!
