EMPATHY PROJECT 2020

REGION 14

In collaboration with the Museum of Jewish Heritage, ASAP! will provide the opportunity for teachers and students to learn about and understand different aspects of the Holocaust. This includes professional development, a field trip to the museum, a curriculum that aligns with Common Core, and an opportunity for creative expression.

Today, there are fewer and fewer Holocaust survivors left to tell their story. Through the Empathy Project 2020 these stories will be remembered and live on through participants as inspiration to make our world a better, kinder, and more loving place.

The arts connect us to each other, provide space for emotion, expression, empathy, compassion, creativity, collaboration, communication, and courage. Participants will be guided by professional artists and express their experiences through visual arts, spoken word, music, movement, and writing. The project will culminate in a collaborative sharing by teachers and students telling their stories, which will connect them to the Holocaust in a personal way.
