How Schools Can Transform Community Through Trauma-Informed Arts

October 1, 2018 @ 10:15 am - 11:30 am

Trauma Informed School conference 2018

Hanna Institute’s Nick Dalton will present “Beyond Consequences”, the 2018 Trauma Informed Schools Conference

This interactive session details how two projects, one in India and one in California’s Sonoma Valley, used trauma-informed arts to help students succeed. First, we’ll travel to the slums of Pune, India, where The Maya Project – a collaboration between ASTEP (Artists Striving To End Poverty) and Teach For India – helped student academics soar an average of two grade levels in the project’s first nine months. Driven by student- and community-led learning, this two-year transformation involved teacher development, arts integration, community organizing, restorative practices, heartfulness meditation, and more. Next, we’ll see how the Hanna Institute is currently using similar methods in Sonoma County to help the community heal from 2017’s devastating wildfires. Leave this session with a set of trauma-informed art techniques that transcend borders and trauma and can be implemented by any school.
