Hear firsthand from Yomely Marte, an ESL teacher at Providence’s Nowell Leadership Academy about the impact a recent FirstWorks Virtual Learning workshop, conducted in Spanish had on her.
You understand the transformative power the arts can have–making us laugh and cry, helping us heal and grow, building understanding and empathy, creating connections and community. That healing power is needed now more than ever. Since COVID-19 struck, we’ve been hard at work making the performing arts accessible to all in our community, from virtual learning programs for students and teachers, to virtual workshops for elder populations and families to virtual and safely-distanced performances for the entire community.
“Being able to ask questions of Yo-Yo Ma? I told my students that’s like going to your local playground to shoot hoops with Michael Jordan”
