Workshop for Teachers on Preserving Cultural Legacies

November 02, 2018

On Friday, November 2, and Saturday, November 3, 26 teachers representing 20 K-12 schools on four islands converged for an action-packed weekend to learn about effective methods in the preservation of cultural traditions and knowledge. Participants learned about oral and photo history, enjoyed a guided tour of China Town, and tried their hand at taiko, and o-bon dancing. Teachers were also provided with activity ideas to replicate in their classrooms.

This teacher workshop was provided in collaboration with the East-West Center Arts Program. The workshop was connected thematically to the East-West Center Gallery Exhibition: “Capturing a Legacy: Four Generations of Nepalese Photographers.” The exhibit tells the story of the legacy of the Chitrakar family as artists and visual documentarians. They have caught key moments in Nepal’s history through the lens of four generations of photographers.
