A Daring Adventure: Artists and teachers partner for school reform

Here’s a link to story I wrote for High Performance #71, Spring 1996. I spent several a week with a residency at O’Maley Middle School in Gloucester, Mass., conducted by musician Philip Aaberg in November 1995. The residency was part of a year-long program called “Take a Flying Leap,” designed by teachers at O’Maley along with Celeste Miller & Co. (a local dance organization) and the Gloucester Stage Company (a community theater) in an effort to make art, in all its facets, part of education and life experience for the children of Gloucester. The story is accompanied by sidebars on the Coalition for Essential Schools, 23 Questions from teachers that artists can help answer, an example of a Student Assessment Questionnaire and a quick glance at educational reform.

The story resides in the archive of the Community Arts Network on the Internet.

Everybody say Hallelujah

hallgraphicHere’s a link to “Everybody Say Hallelujah,” my commentary on the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange community performance¬† initiative of 1998-2002, as published on the Community Arts Network. I spent some time following this multiyear, nationwide initiative and writing about it. This suite of articles should be of use to anyone interested in Lerman’s work or anyone working with community engagement. It’s a virtual how-to.
