Moving Arts Española News:
ESPAÑOLA––Kids and youth from across the Española Valley will converge for a Human Rights Day Camp at La Tierra Montessori School this summer to learn about their own human rights.
“Less than 1 percent of juveniles throughout the world know anything about their human rights and neither public nor private schools are doing much to rectify the situation. This is a major reason current human rights abuses against children have reached an all-time high.” –Kids for Global Peace
In a move toward promoting self-advocacy and empowering the youth of Española Valley, Moving Arts Española, True Kids 1 from Taos and Kids for Global Peace is offering a free, three-week day camp to engage kids 8-12 and young people 13-16 through digital media story sharing, fun activities, games and discussions about the 13 Human Rights for Kids as put forth in Eleonore Roosevelt’s Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Students also will have the opportunity to work with a professional choreographer from New York and a Grammy award winning musician in creating a music video PSA, which will air on Amazon and Netflix. True Kids 1 will lead youth in creating and producing the video, while also providing journalistic coverage of the camp.
The camp will culminate with an hour-long Youth Human Rights Town Hall at Moving Arts Española. The Town Hall will stream online and be covered on KSFR Santa Fe.
