WITS is excited to offer a new writing workshop series for K-12 educators. Join us for our two-part writing on location adventure.
Work with a professional writer
Write on location in response to some of Houston’s most interestingly complex historical markers
Create multi-media projects that interweave private and public histories
Discuss classroom applications
In this multi-cultural workshop for bilingual and non-bilingual educators, writers and performers, participants will write both individually and collaboratively in response to how Houston’s Latinx community in Second Ward developed historic, religious and artistic spaces by and for Latino/as. We will explore and learn about the first Mexican American Church in Houston, Our Lady of Guadalupe, the first bilingual theatre in Houston, Talento Bilingue de Houston, the historic Guadalupe Plaza Park, and the Navigation Esplanade.
