How are you creative? We all know that we inherently possess creativity, and often utilize it in our music making; but how can we employ our creativity to address the challenges in our loves? Based on new research Creative Generation has produced a tool for young people to identify and understand the elements of their creativity – as honed through their music education. Check out this hands-on workshop for learning about and employing your creativity in your community, school, and life. Attendees will explore how they are creative, while crafting tangible next steps for their own leadership as a musician.

As the country reckons with injustice, educators, especially arts educators, possess one of the greatest tools to help young people understand and take action towards social justice. Based on two years of pedagogical research on the intersection of social justice and arts education, join Creative Generation for a hands-on session to integrate the National Core Arts Standards for music with the Teaching for Justice’s social justice education standards. The workshop will culminate with music educators crafting their own conception of an integrated music education/social justice lesson plan.
