Diversity & Inclusion
How does Green Bean teach Diversity & Inclusion?
Children's theater is a natural, engaging teaching tool. The Green Bean Project's goal in bringing arts experiences to children naturally includes bringing positive social messages, like diversity and inclusion. This is because the arts and theater are an experiential way for children to learn about differences and how they can choose to respond to those differences. How does this happen?
Everyone has feelings.
Characters teach empathy.
The Stage is a safe place to try new things and be in new situations.
Storytelling allows both engagement and detachment which facilitates exploration of difficult subjects.
