ARTogether’s cross-cultural educational programs dismiss misinformation and promote understanding of refugees in public by partnering with schools and educational institutes, offering courses about refugees, providing teacher training, and producing media projects and public events.
ARTogether’s classroom modules explore the refugee and immigrant experience in the United States, shedding light on the individual stories of migrants both before relocating and after arriving in the US. The curriculum presents engaging and representative stories of refugees in this country, helping to lend a human face to refugees for K-12 students throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Our different formats work to both teach students in the classroom and to equip teachers with lesson plans to bring to their students. This public education program works to raise awareness of refugee issues and to improve opinions of refugees and immigrants amongst K-12 students. This program first pilot in Fall 2019.

We can do a workshop/training session with a group of your faculty to share with you our curriculum, show you how you could teach it, and brainstorm with you to cater the curriculum to the needs of your students.
In working with us, you establish a relationship with ARTogether. We can work with you to figure out how your students can get involved in local community organizations serving refugees.
We can come in to your classroom or assembly to do a guest lesson or a series of guest lessons. We can plan with you what the goals of the lesson would be and what you hope your students will learn.
As part of a network of participating educators, you will receive updates via our listserve, which also serves as a means to share your ideas with other educators throughout the year.
