courage to care On Exhibition 18 July — 24 August

Cost Free

Venue Glasshouse Regional Gallery

Courage to Care is a student-centred program conveying the messages of social tolerance and of living in harmony. It emphasises the importance of standing up to racism, persecution and any form of prejudice, especially in relation to individuals who belong to minority groups. It is especially relevant to school students as they encounter media images of intolerance and prejudice, or when they experience racism or bullying at school.

Courage to Care has been developed by B’nai B’rith, the world’s oldest community service organisation, founded in 1843. It is supported by the NSW Department of Education and Training. Since 1998, the exhibition has visited many NSW regional areas, spending approximately four weeks in each location. The program focuses on remarkable individuals who had the courage to risk their lives and the lives of their families to save Jews during the Holocaust. They provide powerful role models of individuals imbued with a sense of social justice coupled with strength of character. Their stories instil in all who learn about them the desire for a more harmonious society.

Designers look deeply at human problems, asking questions, immersing themselves in the environment, devising creative solutions, making prototypes, trialling, testing, and identifying the things that work, discarding those that don’t and starting over – this is the way a designer works.

CUSP focuses on the ‘vision’ of the designer rather than a specific work, placing an emphasis on the process rather than the outcome. Ranging from architects to fashion, object, interactive, system, robotics and sound designers, CUSP features Australian practitioners who have the potential to influence lifestyle, learning and cultural change in the decade ahead. An education kit has been developed for secondary students studying a variety of subjects including Design and Technology, Visual Design, Textiles and Design, Visual Arts, Society and Culture, Engineering Science and Geography.

Imaginary Theatre is one of Australia’s leading companies making theatre and arts experiences for children. This teachers’ professional development workshop will provide educators with an introduction to ‘Story Drama’, a classroom-based drama process aimed to deepen students’ engagement with narratives and texts using play-based drama activities. Teachers will be engaged in a handson learning experience which will demonstrate the conventions of ‘Story Drama’ using one of the Tashi books, and provide them with simple resources to implement the ‘Story Drama’ format into their teaching practice. By providing drama skills to teachers that can be applied to not only the Tashi stories, but any text or narrative, this workshop is a great professional development opportunity for teachers in preparing for the implementation of the new National Curriculum for The Arts.
