Pre-Texts in Kenya, Shamiri Institute

Our partner Shamiri Institute, Kenya has been sharing reflections about Pre-Texts in their social media: “The conversations and reflections around the role of art in the world during our Pre-Texts Workshop last week were very interesting. Did you know that a simple change in the way we do things, such as sitting in circles instead of rows, could make a whole difference in decision making, our classrooms and our communities at large?” “Working with schools to facilitate Pre-Texts has taught us that we can use and re-use the materials we have to create art and make reading more fun. After working with the students, we asked them what they liked most about Pre-Texts and most of them responded that they enjoyed reading! Enjoy more about this partnership!
