Using the Caldecott Award winning children’s book, Outside, Inside by LeUyen Pham, this creative, theatre arts opportunity will allow participants, ages 8-18, to reflect on their journey through the COVID-19 pandemic and use their personal reflections and experiences to create a new and unique performance for the community at large. In direct conversation with the author, Arts In Motion has been granted express permission to utilize the book as inspiration for participants to create their own production.
Through facilitated group ‘think sessions,’ participants will be asked to take inspiration from the story or their own experiences and collaborate to write scenes, monologues, and stage interpretations of their own creation to share with others. Even if your child does not want to appear on stage as an actor, this “page to stage” opportunity is open to creative children willing to collaborate, create, and reflect with others to produce what we know will be a beautiful and powerful piece that allows our children’s voices to be heard.
Conway Public Library will be closed Monday, October 9th in observance of the Columbus Day Federal Holiday
