Still We Arise: Stories of Triumph

Developed for Arts Partners' academic program year 2016-2017, ARISE, Inc. (African Americans Renewing Interest in Spirituals Ensemble, Inc.) will bring to life the stories and legacies of African American artists and historians from the 1860s to the 1970s. Students will experience a brief performance by the teaching artists and/or ensemble, followed by coaching with members of ARISE to participate in the elements of storytelling, readers theatre and choral music that comprise a complete performance. During the workshops, students will learn about early freedom fighters during slavery, all the way to modern day Civil rights leaders (1860s - 1970s). They will compare and contrast the challenges these determined individuals faced with the students' own challenges.
Program Structure: Single workshop, One Residency comprised of three Duo Workshops, One optional Performance follows the Residency.
