Tulane Screens Films from Students, NOLA Kids


As politicians and teachers debate programs for the future of NOLA’s kids, the students themselves are putting in their two cents outside of the La. Supreme Court. Tonight, Tulane kids and budding young scholars will showcase short films that deal with education, violence, food, spirituality, service, and community restoration.

 

No one is as qualified in education reform than the students themselves, at least that’s how’s Kids Rethink New Orleans broaches the subject. Mostly made up of Middle School-aged kids, the program allows rethinkers (and much younger “prethinkers”) to share their input with community organizers, architects, artists, educators, and media experts.

 

Students from Tulane’s “Place-Based Storytelling in New Orleans” class joined with the Rethinkers and Joseph S. Clark Prep to present the series of short films, “New Orleans Stories: A Community Showcase of Student Films.”

 

The event takes place at Tulane’s Lavin Bernick Center, in the Kendall-Cram lecture hall, from 6pm-8pm. Refreshments will be served after the screenings. Tonight’s showcase is free and open to the public.
