Working in Community to Make Community-Centered Education Work in Windsor

Presenters: Keighan Eaker, Christie Keeney

Facilitators: Susan Hennessey, Life LeGeros, Paul Gambill, and Eric Booth.

The Vermont Community Learning Network (VCLN) is bringing together community teams for a series of three workshops to share their current progress on the VT Mural Project and explore how this creative community-engaged project acts as a catalyst for system change. The next workshop in the series will take place Thursday, May 27 at 4pm EST, and feature educators from Hazen Union School, in Hardwick VT. They’ll grapple with similar questions around how the VT Mural Project could help them kick off the coming school year.

Registration now open.
