Department of Education & Outreach
Foty Fusion Productions provides students of all ages the opportunity to gain hands-on internship experience in the arts. This program allows students to shadow various members within their field of interest, introducing them firsthand to the necessary skills needed to succeed in their given field. Students will have the chance to assist in the production of a documentary film, coordinate social justice workshops in public schools, design a new logo for a company, photograph an event, create a website for a non-profit organization, or work in early childhood music education. This internship program seeks to establish a supportive network for youth interested in the arts, who through obtaining practical experience can learn that a profession in the arts can be a fulfilling and viable career path.
The Department of Education and Outreach promotes the utilization of social justice principles through the arts as an integral and vital component of multi-faceted learning in the classrom. We provide lectures and workshops which approach various subjects through the use of innovative artistic techniques. We utilize the arts as a social justice teaching technique in schools to encourage self-empowerment of students and activist leadership in student communities. We also specialize in lectures and workshops which seek to provide a greater and more nuanced understanding of various cultures through presentations at academic institutions including universities, high schools, foundations and student organization events. The video below illustrates the manner in which the lecture-performance hybrid incorporates both historical content and musical performance or artistic expression.
