Programs & Events
Through Positive Eyes: Live ‘Artivist’ Storytelling
Wednesday, April 21 | 12:30 pm
This real-time, interactive presentation of Through Positive Eyes will invite you to confront stigma and build empathy for the resilient spirit of those facing the challenges of HIV/AIDS. Local ‘artivists’ (artist + activists) Edward and Pat will share their personal stories about living with HIV, and encourage participants to join the efforts to banish stigma – a major roadblock to both prevention and treatment.
Virtual Educator Social: The Art of Virtual Field Trips
Thursday, April 29 | 4 pm
Connect with your fellow educators from across the region for conversations, networking, learning sessions, and resources. Hear about the Discovery Center’s virtual Field Trips, our upcoming exhibition: “Enduring COVID-19, Stories from Our Changing World”, and our Live “Artivist” Storytelling Experience. Engage in small groups to brainstorm new ways to maximize your student’s virtual learning. Please bring your favorite beverage; we look forward to seeing you and your peers!
