Courage in Action All-Stars at Austin City Hall

by: Natalie Goodnow, Artistic Associate

Courage in Action All-Star Camp is off to a fantastic start!  We just had our first day, and our campers proved that they are indeed just as compassionate, courageous, confident, and creative as we knew they would be!  We would like to extend an invite to see the All Stars share their work on July 15 at City Hall.

The students from Theatre Action Project’s Courage in Action All Star summer camp are taking community issues to Austin City Hall on Friday, July 15 at 10:00 a.m. The 5th and 6th grade camp students will be exploring issues such as bullying, the environment, animal neglect, and more, and taking those concerns to Austin City Hall with the opportunity for City of Austin staff to respond to the identified concerns and engage in a dialogue with the visiting students.

Courage in Action All Star camp students are challenged to become “courageous leaders” who can recognize a problem in their world and work together with others to solve it non-violently; they learn from the examples of other courageous leaders such as Cesar Chavez, Martin Luther King, and Mahatma Gandhi.

Students will arrive by bus to Austin City Hall, 301 W. 2nd St. Austin, TX 78701, in Downtown Austin in time to present their issues at 10:00 a.m. The presentation will be followed by a special tour of the facility for the students.
