May 2010 – Feltonville Intermediate "Lifting Our Cultures and Families" Parade


On Friday, May 28th Feltonville students and community members will parade together through the streets of Feltonville, sharing and celebrating the many beautiful cultures in their vibrant community. This parade is a culmination of Feltonville Intermediate’s exploration of identity, culture, and relationships within the community. For the past six weeks, Spiral Q led Feltonville third, fourth, and fifth graders, their older siblings, parents, and faculty in dialogues and hands-on activities about their families, their backgrounds, and the diversity of cultures in their community. Students worked together to create giant puppets that represent community members and the relationships between them: mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, and teachers and students. Come see the magnificent giant puppets created by the students and join Feltonville and Spiral Q in appreciation of all the colorful places and cultures we come from!
The parade will step off from Feltonville Intermediate, 238 East Wyoming Avenue, Philadelphia, 19120 at 1:00 PM.
This is a great example of one of the 10-15 partnerships that we lead with Philadelphia schools annually. Our Education Initiatives offer participants creative, engaging and sequential project-based art education and youth development programs that build community within schools while teaching collaboration and communication skills through creative group settings and processes.
