Gormont, Bill The Magic of Character Island - Character Development Show Life Skills- Other,

Join Professional Magician Bill Gormont, as Captain Bill, on a visit to Character Island where he explores The Magic of 8 Big Ideas. He presents an interactive, educational performance blending magical entertainment with valuable ideas for children to live with, and grow through their teen years into caring responsible adults. Captain Bill effectively delivers the message to elementary grades K through 6 as he educates and entertains. Throughout the show, Captain Bill uses fun, laughter, excitement and surprise to reinforce each of the 8 Big Ideas: Be a Friend, Be Responsible, Believe in Yourself, Help Others, Play Fair, Share with Others, Have Tolerance for Others and Work Together. To close the show, Captain Bill and some treasure hunters from the audience magically discover an old map that leads them to a treasure chest hidden on the island many years before. Legend says the chest contains a valuable treasure. Is it gold, silver, diamonds, pearls or money? The visitors to the island are the only ones who can discover the secret. This show is ideal for elementary schools, child development centers and libraries where the focus is reinforcing the fundamentals of youth character development education through fun, experiential learning.

Herscovitch, Lara Workshop - Wingspan: Building Creative Confidence and Courage Life Skills- Other,
Music,
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.

Handy, Spook Remembering Pete Seeger History,
Life Skills- Other,
Music
I had the fortune of performing 50+ concerts and festivals alongside Pete Seeger between 2003 and his passing in 2014, learning many of his songs and the stories behind them – and not only songs he wrote but those of Woody Guthrie and many others. He was a mentor not only of music but of how to be a decent human being. After Pete passed in 2014, I participated in many tribute concerts with the likes of Peter Yarrow, Tom Chapin, David Amram, Guy Davis and others. Now, I have put together a “program” called “Remembering Pete Seeger.” I am presenting it in concert halls, theaters, arts centers, libraries, festivals, summer concert series, and colleges all over the world. “Spook Handy honors the spirit of Pete Seeger, so excellently, by sharing the music with everyone on stage and in the audience in the same way that Pete did. He makes music the star. That’s why Pete loved to play with him so often and why all of us who are still here also do.” … David Amram – recipient of the second annual Pete and Toshi Seeger Power of Song Award.
