SOUTH END STORIES

Trauma Informed Arts Practice : Healing Through History and Creativity

We seek to use storytelling and exploration of identity, through multimedia arts programs and culturally responsive facilitation, to cultivate a safe, engaging, and productive, academic experience for students. Our approach encourages high order thought and stimulates creativity at the highest level of learning, while owning a prominent role for orchestrating change in schools.

 
 

ABOUT US

MISSION

Every student learns through the arts, employs innovation, and is inspired to dream big.

VISION

Artists, teachers, advocates, guardians, elders, and students spearhead a transactional movement to innovative teaching, and then opportunities become abundant in project-based learning throughout communities.

FALL PROGRAMMING DEVELOPMENT

IS NOW UNDER WAY!

It's an uncertain time for everyone, especially students. Which is why South End Stories is developing flexible, trauma informed, quality arts programming for the Fall semester. In partnership with Seattle University, Seattle Public Schools, The Global Unspoken Truths American History Traveling Museum, and many more education leaders in Seattle, we will support students and staff through the next several months with creativity, resilience, and joy. 

Here are some things we are providing this Fall:

  • Lesson plans, teaching artists, supplemental programming, and resources for schools and families

  • One-on-one coaching and support for our partner schools

  • Professional development for educators around arts integration and culturally responsive pedagogy

  • Community events aimed at engaging families and staff in conversations around arts-based learning and racial equity

  • More youth-created and curated content on the blog

South End Stories is funded by Best Starts for Kids, an initiative of The King County Department of Community and Human Services.

 In 2020, SES joined the Intiman Theatre family of education programs, where it continues to operate with its own director and staff.
