Art, narrative and storytelling can be powerful ways to explore individual and collective trauma and resilience in the classroom. Drawing from a recent collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and other arts institutions, and using photographs from the Magnum collection recently acquired by Woodward, this workshop will explore the use of visual art in helping educators to teach and explore stress, the body, emotions, and the cultivation of resilience in a classroom or whole school-setting. The workshop will show how these skills, drawn in particular from Emory University’s science-based SEE Learning program, can serve as a foundation for the cultivation of trauma-informed mindfulness and attention; for self-regulation and the navigation of emotions; for the cultivation of constructive relationships; and even for addressing systemic issues such as inequity and social change. Through such an approach, the real concerns of students’ lived experience intersect with art and narrative in the classroom to facilitate and enhance personal and collective learning.
