Public Performance: CHALK

January 7, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


MOSH is partnering with Barbara Colaciello, Director and Producer of BABS’LAB, for a special presentation of poetic excerpts from CHALK.

A play written by nationally known poet and radio host Al Letson, CHALK reveals the inner voices of kids who are trapped in a society where bullying is tolerated in schools, on social media and in the work place. This performance brings awareness to verbal abuse and relational aggression through community engagement with the arts. The performance will follow a talk back and an improvised story share led by Colaciello, who facilitates workshops using improvisation as the tool.

This program is presented in conjunction with MOSH’s current traveling exhibition, Choosing to Participate, which was developed by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) and the educational organization, Facing History and Ourselves. Choosing to Participate encourages students and visitors to create positive social change by being up-standers, rather than bystanders, when faced with bullying, racism and other forms of injustice and exclusion.

This program is FREE and open to the public!

Suggested ages for this program is middle school and up.

Refreshments will be provided.

In order for us to accurately accommodate all guests, we ask that you please RSVP for this program by emailing Elizabeth Valnoha, Public Programs Coordinator.

Choosing to Participate is made possible by Community First Credit Union.
