Herscovitch, Lara Workshop - Wingspan: Building Creative Confidence and Courage Life Skills- Other,
(Women & Wingspan: same workshop with female-only participants) To be human is to be creative. Even so, many of us have trouble connecting to, nurturing and prioritizing our creativity. In this engaging, interactive, values-centered workshop, participants will learn strategies to connect to their internal compass and harness their innate wisdom, patience and tolerance for taking creative risks. Through individual writing and reflection, individual and group exercises, live and recorded music, and group discussion, we will cover: debunking the myths of process and perfection; sources of inspiration; embracing fear and the vulnerability of creative connection; letting comparison be inspiring instead of toxic; identifying and overcoming stumbling blocks; letting go of achievement-driven art and embracing intrinsic, soulful expression regardless of outcome; connecting one’s art to purpose; and allowing one’s unique perspective and voice to shine. No matter from which creative arena – painting, drawing, pottery, poetry, photography, music and beyond – each participant will have protected time and space to re-discover and re-commit to expressing their creative core.

Carpenter, Margot The Underground Railroad in New York City--the Big Meaning Then, the Big Meaning to Us Now History,
Life Skills- Other
We describe places and courageous people of the Underground Railroad in New York City. In the early 1800s, a battle went on. It was of men and women, black and white, who wanted people to be free; and those intent on capturing them, to send them back to their “owners,” likely to be tortured, often to be killed, often sold to plantations far South. Our basis is the education Aesthetic Realism, founded by the great American poet and philosopher Eli Siegel. Aesthetic Realism explains this battle was between two ways of self, our own selves. It’s the battle of respect for the world and people, the desire to be fair to them, see meaning and value in people; and contempt for the world and people. Slavery, we’ll show, arises from contempt; the forces of the UGRR stood for respect. This was what the Civil War was about. Studying this we have the thrilling ability to learn about ourselves through history. Wrote Eli Siegel: "The fight, Shall I see the world and people with contempt or respect? is the fight within every individual right now; it is our constant, inward, personal civil war." Includes a re-enactment of an escape!

Herscovitch, Lara …And Justice For All: Advocacy for Reform through a Music Lens Life Skills- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Decades of misguided policy and practice have created a human and civil rights crisis in the U.S. The massive, unequal and unethical overreach of our criminal justice system creates more problems than it solves. Though there is widespread, bipartisan, well-researched agreement on the need to shrink and reform the justice system, federal leadership is now repeating many of the same costly mistakes. This unique, multi-media program is educational and entertaining, part presentation and part concert. It covers themes including the over-criminalization of human behavior, implicit and system bias, impacts on children, mass incarceration, for-profit prisons, impacts on children and the role of schools, and alternative approaches that set us up to succeed instead of to fail.
