Interrupting school practices that disregard the mental health of Black youth.
By Coshandra Dillard ISSUE 63, FALL 2019
“Because systemic issues related to race and poverty disproportionately affect Black children and families, schools, due to having access to large numbers of children, are a practical way to meet a significant need.”
Did you know the Haggerty offers tours to community and school groups?!
In-person guided tours include multiple artwork stops, during which groups will have the choice of four three styles: general exhibition exploration (discussion based), an exhibition deep dive (lecture based), or a fun experience in the exhibition (discussion and activity based). Tours are approximately 50 minutes long. Guided tours can be scheduled for a maximum group size of sixty-five people Tuesday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. must be scheduled at least four weeks in advance. ($100 - $150 flat fee per 65 students)
Self-guided tours —where groups explore the galleries on their own—are also available. The museum offers a menu of experiences and resources that will help your group make the most of their visit. Self-guided museum visits can be scheduled for groups of up to sixty-five participants and must be scheduled at least four weeks in advance. Self-guided tours are Free!
There are fees associated with our offerings, however you can request a scholarship here: Scholarship Application. We would suggest that you complete the scholarship request form as early as possible. The Museum also offers reimbursement for student transportation costs incurred while visiting the Museum!
