This month we're talking education and the arts.
There is a long list of studies showing the value of the arts in education. And we're going to talk with someone that is actively trying to bring the arts back to Detroit and Michigan.
Our special guest is Samantha White. She is the Founder/Artistic Director for Shakespeare in Detroit Theater Company. The theater company pioneered the first free outdoor performance of Shakespeare’s work, featuring an all local cast, during their production of “Othello” at Grand Circus Park this past summer.
When she is not in the director’s chair, White is a theater instructor with the YMCA Boll’s Y-Arts program where she visits local schools and engages youth between the ages of 5 and 17 with Shakespeare and theater. In addition, she oversees a volunteer theater project, Shakespeare Against Cancer, where she facilitates local actors to perform vignettes as a respite for children during their chemotherapy sessions.
Come and join us for lively discussion, drinks, dinner and debate! This is a good event for Skeptics of Michigan to come together and discuss local, national, worldwide items affecting skeptics. All are welcome to listen and participate.
Please be sure to RSVP so I know how many are coming. That way I can modify the reservation if necessary.
I hope to see you all there!
