New Mexico Reggio Emilia Exchange (NMREX), a statewide initiative
Coming to Albuquerque:
Voices of Children is a short documentary film created by an international team of educators and filmmakers. The 23 minute film is a call to action to create a more inclusive and complex conception of human rights through listening to and observing young children in diverse contexts around the globe. The film is available to families, educators, advocates, and policy-makers as a provocation to reflect, dialogue and take action.
We see children as current citizens of the world. As active and capable community participants, their perspectives can inform our thinking about rights.
In this small film with a big heart, we meet young children from communities around the globe, bringing us a glimpse of their extraordinary diversity. Behind their experiences lie messages, both universal and informed by place, time, and culture. The children share their ideas, hopes, challenges, and capacity through many forms of expression. We watch as they talk, sing, work, dance, and play. They are telling us their understandings of rights. Engage directly with the children in the film and listen deeply. What messages do you hear?
August 15, 2019 5:30-7:00pm Children’s Choice Theater
