Language Out Loud
Simple yet profound, Pre-Texts is a pedagogical protocol that uses challenging texts as primary material for art-making. Inviting educators to use local languages and creative practices to ‘own’ challenging texts, Pre-Texts makes teaching easier and learning more fun. Teachers can create lessons in which students dance to the text, sing along to the text, create videos or take photos inspired by the text, make comic books with the text—the list is endless. Between interpreting the material and reflecting on the process, creative and critical thinking develop together.
Cultural Agents is an NGO as well as an initiative at Harvard University. Since 2002, the organisation has sought to increase the impact of creative and scholarly practices by identifying artists, educators, and community leaders who have developed socially productive artistic practices. This is achieved through reflecting on the role of art in building civil society, and by disseminating best practices through workshops and public forums.
