Description / Descripción

Based on research of the “Children Are Citizens” initiative from Project Zero at Harvard University, the Trash to Treasure project will engage and capacitate our preschoolers and lower elementary students to be agents of change in our local community. This interdisciplinary project will bring attention to an important environmental issue within our community. Plastic pollution will be transformed into an interactive exhibit and lead our students from bystanders to advocates. Community-wide beach clean-ups will provide students with the trash to create an original multi-media piece that incorporates movement to engage and communicate our message. The installation of the piece in the Village center will be videotaped in a community engagement experience. Our children’s voices will charge viewers to respond by combatting pollution in their own communities. In our interactive workshop, we will involve participants in various ways, including adding to our piece by creating their own trash strand.
