Hamilton IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access) brings the Hamilton community together to support one another in raising kids who think critically about the wider world and issues of social justice. For 2018-19, our focus is on helping families discuss race and racism with their children in age-appropriate ways.
What’s the big IDEA? is an interactive, FUN family workshop brought to you by Hamilton IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Access). The fabulous team at Free Street Theater will lead conversations and activities that build skills for:
Engaging in active dialogue, especially when disagreement makes it difficult
Discussing challenging topics like race and gender with joy and creativity
Modeling positive communication for our kids
Kids will take part in age-appropriate discussion and play-based activities to explore their role in making our world more equitable and inclusive.
Saturday, May 18th at Hamilton
