People underestimate how powerful the media is for young people who grow up watching a lot of television. Through the media, we've established this standard of what every human being should look up to.
This fun intergenerational workshop explores what we love and hate about Disney films, characters and brands from the past and present. If you’re a kid, teen, parent, educator or anyone who works with youth, join us to experience how our knowledge, beliefs and attitudes about film can be harnessed and expanded through simple interactive learning strategies. Discover how discussing popular culture can be a great opportunity to activate critical thinking, creativity and social action.
