After School and The Arts: A Partnership for At-Risk Youth Expression

Today’s youth are bombarded by constant “noise”. The digital world, just fingertips away, keep their minds engaged and buzzing. How do our kids find the necessary avenues for self-expression and validation amongst all that is in their periphery? Learn how we, at the Dover Teen Center, found ways to create these opportunities for youth to express themselves, through our Arts in Action programming efforts. Through equal parts of presentation and group conversation, workshop participants will leave with ideas on how to engage youth with traditional arts, music, storytelling and more. In addition, we’ll share our methods on how to find community partners and grant funding.
The Dover Teen Center is coordinated by the Community Outreach Bureau of the Dover Police Department.

Adverse Childhood Experiences and the Arts

When educators learn about the devastating impact of ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences), childhood trauma, and toxic stress on a child’s developing body, brain, and behavior, they often remark, “Well..what do I do now?”  Today, becoming “trauma-informed” is about initiating and sustaining systems change.  It begins with acknowledging that the current functioning of public service (i.e. education, health care, mental health, etc.) compounds survival reactions rather than mitigates them. Becoming a “trauma-informed” system requires intentional actions (reflected in organizational processes) that generate psychological safety and autonomic nervous system regulation. Emily shares how deep engagement with the Arts can be a positive tool in creating a trauma responsive system.

Shadows

Inspired by Neil Bousfield's wordless novel of woodcut images, Shadows is a portrayal of a poor couple, working opposite shifts in the same factory, as they struggle through addiction and family crisis to find hope. They see that every decision is a choice, but finding the strength to break the cycle is the hardest choice of all. With its visceral, acrobatic movement and compelling story of strength, desire and loss, this one-act straddles the worlds of dance and theatre.
