RESPONSES FROM OUR PREVIOUS WORKSHOP: REBEL WISE


A series of 5 workshops featuring Mic Crenshaw and Quincy Davis took place from late 2020 - 2021 and here is the response from our first 3-day workshop series at Bridger K-8, Portland:

"In this historical moment, there is nothing more important than finding ways to engage students in meaningful learning opportunities. Our visit from guest artists Mic Crenshaw and Quincy Davis provided a chance for students to learn about storytelling, music production, and art as resistance through live discussions. This experience made students feel connected to the community outside of the online learning environment, provided chances for critical thinking, and let them know that their voices matter."  - Susan Anglada Bartley, M.Ed, Bridger K-8

"I liked how they were leading the conversation." - Elyas M.

"They were super inspiring and their music is very powerful." - Amara P.

"Their music told stories and told things about the world right now, they are inspiring with a powerful type of music." - Presley P. 

"They're using their music to tell stories about what is going in the world today and express themselves and share their perspectives so that we can connect with them through a whole personal level. Their music is powerful, well-thought, and provoking, using quotes that can shape people's perspectives on how they see in the world. In other words, their music helps us connect and reunite as a community during hard times when our country feels divided and hope is lost."  - Thyson N.
