Create safe spaces for students to share their stories with our SEL-rich curriculum

Following Hurricane Harvey, every student has a story to tell. Alley Theatre wants to help students share these stories. Our writing and personal narrative programs—First Draft, Aristotle, and Playwriting 360º—create commons for students to reconnect after crisis. Bring Alley teaching artists for a workshop or residency to your school to help students bounce back as a group.
