Arts Integration Tools for World Citizens
Educators Learning Tableau
First established in 1954 as Universal Children’s Day, we celebrate World Children’s Day on November 20 each year, promoting international togetherness and a commitment to improving children’s welfare around the world. We uphold the ideals of World Children’s Day every day and in every program. Thanks to your support we are able to bring together educators from across the country in our virtual classroom and get them the arts integration tools and resources that help them engage their students and promote positive youth development. By incorporating these tools into their teaching practices, these educators promote creativity, communication skills, and collaboration, building their students’ capacities to be world citizens.
At the core of our work in youth and community development, we help everyone tell their stories. They may do this through a visual art piece, a poem, or a storytelling performance. They may perform or exhibit their work for all to hear and see. Or they may choose to share with only their close friends and family. Whatever the medium, we know these stories have the power to change the world. Stories are our superpowers that bring us together and make the world a better place.
Now through Dec. 16, we are excited to let you, our supporters, know about our My Story is My Superpower initiative. As a part of this campaign, we will also be posting fun ways to engage with the team of Story Tapestries staff and supporters through social media using the hashtag #StoryPower2019.
Be on the lookout for how to engage and share the power of your stories with us on our Facebook page and Twitter!
On November 20, 1954, the United National General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. For more information about World Children’s Day, you can go to the United Nations' webpage. https://www.un.org/en/observances/world-childrens-day
