Sisters and Brothers Taking it to the Teens

MovementMakers-5878

Here at cohealth Arts Generator we are creating up a storm for a new phase of the Sisters and Brothers Project to be rolled out in a handful of high schools in the west. Over the last 3 years we have brought this hugely successful project to over 10 primary schools across the western suburbs. Sisters and Brothers aims to raise awareness and create dialog around race-based discrimination and its harms, and gives students the tools be active bystanders when they encounter race-based discrimination. The program is implemented by a culturally diverse group of young facilitators who use song writing, body percussion, rapping, singing, beat boxing, theatre and storytelling throughout. The Sisters and Brothers team are currently working up a new program that will go deeper and touch on topics of stereotypes, human rights and the different levels and forms of racism while maintaining the underlying aspect of community responsibility.
