Pages: An Arts, Literacy and Writing Program for High School Students
In Spring 2023, Pages students, under the mentorship of poet Kari Gunter-Seymour, engaged with Meditation Ocean and considered how issues of personal and environmental well-being are intertwined. Participating schools included South Western City Schools Career Academy, West Liberty Salem High School, Columbus Downtown High School, Whitehall Yearling High School, and Walnut Ridge High School. After a virtual visit with M.O. artist/director Hope Ginsburg, Pages students visited the center to experience gallery exhibitions, a performance, and a film and respond to those experiences in writing. The program culminated in a publication of student writings and artwork and an end-of-year open mic reading at the Wexner Center.
