The “Badger Talks Live” program will be taking a look at the UW Arts Collaboratory in its next Facebook Live series at noon on Tuesday, Nov. 10.
The UW Arts Collaboratory provides art-making opportunities for youth to cultivate wellness and advocate for social change. It’s housed in the Office of Professional Learning and Community Education (PLACE) within the School of Education.
The “Badger Talks Live” program will speak with Yorel Lashley, the director of arts with PLACE. He is a developmental psychologist interested in self-efficacy and social-emotional learning in arts, academic and integrated environments. He is also a professional musician, founder/director of Drum Power, a drum and dance experience for young people, and has served on the Madison Arts Commission. His work at PLACE leverages UW-Madison’s arts expertise and rich history from all ten departments in the School of Education to enrich broader communities.
The program will showcase the UW Arts Collaboratory’s vision to have Wisconsin youth see themselves as learners through art-making. Programs include Performing Ourselves (dance), Whoopensocker (drama/creative writing), Fauhaus (visual art) and Drum Power (music).
This virtual talk will take place on the UW Connects Facebook page here.
