Who Am I Anyway-Tiverton

CORE is back for a second year with Who Am I Anyway-This is Me and we are looking forward to another amazing year!

Tiverton Middle School – Grades 5-8

Who Am I Anyway is designed to engage adolescents in grades 5-8 with a focus on self-awareness through performance/creative art education, somatic/mindfulness technique and group discussion. This program works with big themes:  peer pressure, bullying, substance abuse, acceptance, tolerance, and identifying the social/emotional stressors of normal adolescent behavior while at the same time using an arts integrated template to weave in creative ways to cope with big theme issues-and invite a creative spark of learning. This project is designed to be transformative, educational and creative.

This class begins Tuesday, October 23, 2018 START DATE CHANGED TO TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2018  and runs for 14-16 weeks.  The end date is tentative and depends on the availablity of the theater at the high school.  End dates will be announced as class progresses.

Students will meet each Tuesday outside the middle school and walk together to the high school theater.

This class will end with a performance, dates of the performance will be announced toward the end of the session.

The public performance date has been set for Thursday, February 28, 2019 at 7pm in the Tiverton High School Theater.  This performance is free and open to the public.  A talk back panel with student performers and refreshments will immediately follow the performance.
