The Bell has have partnered up with the NY public library and Handwritten, a nonprofit led by a New School alumni, to host an evening of testimony from NYC students.
In addition to the formal program, which will feature testimony in the form of letters, essays, spoken word, and poetry, there will be an array of interactive pre-event activities beginning at 5:00 p.m., designed to inform and engage the public about educational inequity.
Teens Take Charge members will lead pop-up conversations, a letter-writing campaign, video testimonials, a live art installation, photo booth and more.
Teens Take Charge was founded with the support of The Bell and Handwritten. The group was designed to be a self-sustaining, student-led coalition with complete control over the programs, events, and dissemination of information.
The Bell and Handwritten operate in the background, providing the students with larger platforms from which to speak.
The Bell, co-founded by Taylor McGraw, is an education podcast rooted in student narratives.
Handwritten, founded by Brett Rawson, is a digital platform dedicated to the art and act of writing by hand.
