This session will focus on violence prevention and mediation through in-school arts-based education programs. Participants will be introduced to several education programs that the Bronx Museum of the Arts has created to address local violence, including a series of anti-gun violence programs for middle and high school students. Participants will also learn how the museum has integrated Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed trust and team-building exercises into education programs ranging from elementary to adult. Education, Audience Research & Evaluation track generously supported by the Canadian Museum for Human Rights
