Please join us here to read and exchange about the journey our 360 Program, "Learning and Narrating Childhoods," is taking to Ghana over spring break.  We are 16 undergraduate women from Bryn Mawr and Haverford Colleges, two faculty members, a Bryn Mawr College alumna, and two colleagues from Northern Ghana's Titagya Schools.  Our destinations are Titagya Schools, in Dalun, and the University of Ghana, Legon, near Accra.  We will be learning with young learners, teachers, community members, university students, and faculty.  We are exploring how languages, lives, and futures interact as children and communities grow and change.  

This picture is from our joint field trip earlier this semester with Parkway West High School students to UPenn's Museum of Archeology and Anthropology's "Imagine Africa" exhibition.  There we explored and interacted with representations of the continent in order to participate in a renovation of the museum's exhibition of African art and technologies.  Now as we set off to visit and volunteer in Ghana, will will continue revise imaginings with new experiences and future possibilities.

Props to the artist

Just a quick "shout out" to the artist of the poster (or flyer) leading off this post. Who's the artist? Love it! I actually caught it in google images, leading me here. I'm just starting a new blog myself called Tagged! and always looking for artistic inspiration. So to the artist: "Very Cool!"

Hi! Do you mean the "How do you imagine Africa" photo?  That's from the UPenn Museum of Archeaology and Anthropology's exhibit.
