Conversations that Matter: Art that Uplifts

Gabriel "Asheru" Benn, Guerilla Arts Inc.; Maia Sheppard, assistant professor of curriculum and pedagogy, GW's Graduate School of Education and Human Development

Maxine Greene, the noted philosopher of arts, aesthetics, and democracy in education, observed: "Justice, equality, freedom - these are as important to us as the arts, and we believe they can infuse each other, perhaps making some difference at a troubled time." Join GW's Graduate School of Education and Human Development (GSEHD) at the museum for an evening in the ongoing series, "Conversations that Matter," where we will use the Enduring Ideals: Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms exhibition to demonstrate how arts in education can uplift children today. Celebrated local educator, youth activist, and international hip-hop artist Gabriel "Asheru" Benn, founder of the Hip Hop Educational Literacy Program, will be in conversation with GSEHD's Maia Sheppard, assistant professor of curriculum and pedagogy.
