Beyond Labels: Bridging Differences through Story
Experience Noa’s storytelling model to help build bridges for understanding and dialogue in the classroom. Students learn how listening to and telling the story of “the other” can help breakthrough stereotypes and rhetoric to find compassion and the possibility of change.
Residencies range in price, from $2,500 and up, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backward’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.
Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:
• A kick-off assembly (performing arts only)
• A required orientation meeting and planning session
• A set of workshops for classes of up to 25 students each
• A student culminating or sharing event
• An evaluation meeting
"I absolutely LOVED it!!!! I had tingles up my spine the whole time. There are no words to describe how much I love your storytelling!"
"Noa Baum’s rich storytelling brought to life stories from around the world to emphasize the respect and compassion we should have for all people."
Principal, Olney Adventist Preparatory School
"Noa's residency was a huge success! It was obvious that the students walked away with many new skills... this residency allowed the students to express themselves and use their imagination in so many ways! They actively looked forward to their sessions together and could not wait to see Ms. Noa! Thank you for all your hard work!"
