Genius, Joy and Love: Liberating Educators’ Creative Capacities for Change

July 11, 2022 @ 9:00 am - July 14, 2022 @ 2:00 pm

This eight-day summer institute is a partnership between the University of Pittsburgh School of Education and Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh that brings educators together to explore questions about how to center racial justice and equity through creative, arts-informed, innovative and relevant curricular engagements.

Activities and discussion throughout the institute will engage educators to reflect on their identities, lives and literacies; center their hopes, desires, dreams and themselves as significant in our movement toward freedom; critically examine meanings of equity in learning; and lovingly understand the valuable role played by our very own creativities, such as poetry, spoken word, art and song.

New funding enables us to lower the cost of this program to $900/person and offer a limited number of full scholarships.


July 11-14 and July 18-21, 2022

9:00 am – 2:00 pm
At MuseumLab

$900 per educator
