about the program

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 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.
