STREETSIDE COMMUNITY PROGRAMS
Streetside Community Programs help elementary and middle school students connect with the arts, learning and literacy. Students tell their own stories and connect with theater, storytelling, and visual and media arts. In the process, they build writing, reading and communication skills.
At the end of each program, students invite their families and friends to a Sharing Day, during which they perform their stories or screen their short movies.
Our programs include:
Story Train (K–5th grade) combines storytelling, theater, and visual arts to make literacy fun in afterschool programs.
Visual Voices (4th–5th grade) combines photography, storytelling, and writing. In afterschool programs, students bring their stories to life using Streetside's mobile media labs to create digital stories.
Stories Out Loud (6th–8th grade) combines storytelling, theater, and creative writing to build middle school students’ literacy skills.
Stories In Motion (6th–8th grade) helps youth create digital stories. Writing, visual, and media arts give students powerful tools for telling their stories.
Our community programs vary from a one-session customized program to 16 sessions, depending on the needs of our partners. Interested in bringing Streetside Community Programs to your school or community center? Contact us today!
