The Mother Drum – Connecting the circles in our lives and communities
The Texan-French Alliance for the Arts’ summer program is coming soon! We are excited to announce that we will be partnering with YES Prep Northside and the MD Anderson Family YMCA this June for the next installment of our “From a Space to a Place” program. We have been hard at work securing new partnerships and gathering resources to maintain and build on our program’s innovative and engaging nature.
One of these newly acquired resources is the symbolism and tradition of the Native American “Mother Drum,“ which encourages a deep level of connection between students and their community. To introduce this concept to the children, we invited French educator Claire d’Eau, who has been trained in many Native American traditions, to help us facilitate seven drum circle workshops for children ranging from 1 to 16 years old at Little Wonders Learning Center and Agape Development. We look forward to bringing this workshop to the core program!
Thank you Little Wonders Learning Center, Agape Development and Southeast Houston Transformation Alliance for partnering with us on this meaningful program!
