"Arcadia University has partnered with Pennsylvania State Senator Art Haywood to offer an opportunity for young people to learn more about engaging in social change work.
For this special, real-time connection opportunity for the class, Senator Haywood will be in attendance to offer encouraging remarks and to take questions from teens in attendance. It's not everyday that young people get to have a Zoom call with their state senator!
Plus, Carole Loeffler, the chair of the Art department at Arcadia University, will give participants an overview of ""craftivism"" and how artists use their work as political messages or social commentary. She will show participants her studio and examples of her own artwork.
You do not need to be registered for the class to participate in this webinar, but you do need to be registered for the webinar itself. Although the class is geared towards teens, and they will be the participants given the opportunity to ask questions in the webinar, learners of all levels and ages are welcome.
Registration for the class is ongoing and all the information is available here: https://www.arcadia.edu/office-president/social-impact-innovation/haywood-academy
Additionally, Senator Haywood has curated an excellent video library for interested students, available here: http://www.senatorhaywood.com/haywoodacademy
This session will be recorded and it will be entirely optional for young people on the call to participate with their cameras and microphones, which are disabled by default for general attendees. Hosts will selectively allow participants to enable their camera and microphone during the Q&A. The video will be edited before it is shared so that only teens whose parents have signed a consent form will have their image or voice included in their shared recording.
