ENACT understands that children learn best when their social and emotional needs are met. Since 1987, ENACT has delivered trauma-informed, transformative programs through drama therapy and creative drama techniques. Now in its 10th year, Show UP! is a window into the real life challenges that students face on a daily basis such as bullying, peer pressure, emotional turmoil and violence. In today’s new world, students are also concerned with larger issues of immigration and family insecurities. Show UP! is an original dramatic work that explores the outer conflicts as well as the inner struggles of students as they work to overcome obstacles to simply staying in school. The show is a culmination of a year’s worth of working with students in the schools, helping them find solutions to navigating the complex issues that cause students to drop out. It is a celebration of the resiliency of students and the many ways they show up in their lives every day.

New York City’s high school system is built on choice, but in reality many of the city’s low-income students of color are shut out of its top schools. Now, the city is trying to figure out how to give more students a fair shot — and in the process make schools more diverse. Chalkbeat NY has been following this story closely, and now we’re inviting people from across the system to join us in a conversation about what can be done to improve this process. Get your tickets here. Catch up with our reporters and connect with others who care about New York City schools at this solutions-oriented panel discussion and networking event. Your $17 ticket donation supports Chalkbeat, and drinks and appetizers are on us! (Two drink tickets for either beer or wine will be provided to guests over 21 years old.) Happy hour will begin at 6 p.m., followed by a panel discussion at 6:45 with additional time for mingling once the panel wraps. We look forward to seeing you there!
