Genocide Awareness Month and OvaHerero Fashion

5:00 pm
Chatting with Choices

Grab your colleagues and join us for Chatting with Choices! We’re acknowledging Genocide Awareness Month in April, highlighting the “Fashion as Cultural Heritage and Historical Memory” lesson in the Confronting Genocide curriculum unit. Participants will analyze a fashion piece as an historical object, consider the role of fashion as a political or cultural statement, and sketch their own fashion piece using symbolism.

Chatting with Choices is an informal time for you and other educators to ask questions, explore features in our Digital Editions platform, chat about best practices, learn about new developments, and more.

Chatting with Choices is not recorded.
