Create1World Creative Activism and Global Citizenship Conference Days 2019
Create1World invites creative secondary students and teachers to join us at the fourth annual creative activism and global citizenship conference days, in Wellington on November 14 and Auckland on November 21. The conference days are free for secondary students and teachers, and feature inspirational panels of local and international creative activists who are using their art to solve global problems, followed by hands-on learning in workshops led by educators from Massey University who teach and practice socially connected art. We provide a fair trade lunch and morning tea, too.
Over the past 4 years, Create1World, with the support of organisations including UNESCO, Massey University, and New Zealand Centre for Global Studies, has given Aotearoa is young people hope, guidance, inspiration and role models of diverse artists (writers, dancers, theatre makers, upcycling fashion designers, performance poets, photographers, carvers, filmmakers, visual artists, musicians and many more) who are using their art to connect us across cultures, build tolerance, and address global issues such as peace, inequality, the experiences of refugees and migrants, and climate change. We think this is important work to be sharing and celebrating right now, and we invite all teachers and students in Y7–13 to join us for Create1World 2019.
In the lead-up to the conference days, we also run a national creative activism and global citizenship competition for young people (opening for entries August 1). See our other current Education Gazette notice for further details of the competition – or you can see all the details of both the competition and the conference days here: http://masseyblogs.ac.nz/expressivearts/2019/03/06/create1world-2019
