About The Project

WonderRoot is an Atlanta-based non-profit arts organization committed to uniting artists and community to inspire positive social change. We would like to present a series of workshops and concerts through WonderRoot' s Creativity for Kids program in which Wonder Root artists go to schools, partner with mentoring organizations, and partner with other community service organizations to teach art production methods. The workshops will be titled "Sound as Material" and will focus on concepts we have learned at Oberlin through studies in contemporary music, dance, sculpture, and experimental improvisation through these media. They will also offer us a means to develop skills we have learned through our extensive pedagogical study and work with the Oberlin Music Mentors program, in order to bring an understanding and engagement of new ways of approaching music to a new generation of listeners.
