Earlier this year, we shared an exciting new part of our PM room! We created a representation wall in an effort to weave more diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) work through after school.
For the first installment of our representation wall, we highlighted different role models in our society and in our own MCDS community who take risks. If you'd like to see who we featured and why we chose them, make sure you take a look at our blog post about it!
Next up on the representation wall, we decided to use art to speak up on the issues that we find most important. Our PM Art teacher, Shannon, collected posters from other artists outside of MCDS with inspiring messages on them. Shannon and I also spent two days in PM Art talking to the students about what topics were important to them and why it can be empowering to speak up for what you believe in.
We had so many students want to make a poster that we had way too many for our representation wall! We decided we still wanted to display all of them, so we put the extra posters on our cabinets in PM.
We really enjoyed this project, and we loved seeing what the students came up with and felt strongly about. They were very thoughtful with their approach to this process, and it shows in their beautiful artwork.
Enjoy some photos from behind the scenes of making their activism posters and some of the final products! If you'd like to see more of them, we encourage you to stop by PM to come see them!
