Symphony Space's Global Arts: Cultural Literacy & Heritage is a multi-disciplinary program that uses workshops, lecture-demonstrations, and interactive performances to reveal a deeper and richer understanding of the world around us.
CAP gives thousands of students insight into the social studies curriculum through interaction with the arts and artists in the classroom, at museums, and at Peter Norton Symphony Space.
For teachers, CAP offers an opportunity to explore the ways that the arts can make textbook studies come alive, staff development workshops with previews of CAP events, interaction with classroom artists, and training in the use of non-textbook approaches to the curriculum. Arts resource materials, including discussion guides and suggested lesson plans, are provided. Ultimately, CAP offers teachers non-traditional interactive ways to achieve the goals of the NYS Learning Standards in Social Studies, Language Arts, and the Performing and Visual Arts.
For students, CAP offers immediate contact with the arts and artists, connections between the arts and the culture(s) under study, hands-on involvement with authentic, traditional works of music, dance, drama and art, and opportunities to create original works of music, drama, and art.
All Write! introduces adult literacy students to the beauty and the power of the written word at a special Selected Shorts performance at Peter Norton Symphony Space. The students are then invited to submit their own work, a selection of which is read by the same actors at a second performance.
