Workshops, Skype & Chats
Westport High School in Massachusetts was the latest in a series of Priority Boxes Art Workshops being down inside classrooms across the country – and abroad (go Argentina!). The students created boxes with their teacher and participated in a Skype Chat with Franck exchanging ideas on everything from peace, art and activism. The story was covered by a local paper and we got a lovely shout out from the city’s Cultural Council! "Contemporary artists, like the students, are becoming more involved in their communities through their work. This project is a model of that. Art is really a great connector for building community."
