“The SEL Innovation Award for Teachers will fund the "Agents of Change" program ( “Agents of Change” are students who are offered opportunities to make contemporary art while defining their identity, participating in and developing community and promoting a sense belonging through building and sustaining social and emotional skills. The "Agents of Change" are empowered to promote initiatives they elect as important and significant to who they are in the world around them. The project instructors develop partnerships that facilitate collaborative lessons with artists, curators and art institutions to deepen curriculum and content knowledge to facilitate meaningful experiences.”
