Young Civilians at Work!

In the spring semester of this academic year, The Civilians piloted a new Education Program at a public high school in Brooklyn! The class, taught by the fabulous Civilians' Associate Artist Emily Ackerman (of THIS BEAUTIFUL CITY and recent THE GREAT IMMENSITY readings), focused on issues of the environment. These high school sophomores talked to family, friends, neighbors, shop keepers in their neighborhoods, and more about their beliefs about climate change and their role in preserving the environment on a local level, covering topics like littering. They then used these interviews to craft a play - sound familiar? Check out the video posted below to see what these extraordinary kids came up with in the funny and interesting presentation that they did at the end of the class!
