The Scribes In Schools Initiative
(We are still working out the details of this initiative. More specific information coming soon!)
One of the hardest parts of being a creative child is our society's fixation on what is and isn't a valid career choice for the future. I remember when I was back in school, I was always being told that I should get a "real job", and that there was no way that a creative career could pay the bills.
The irony, of course, is that creative careers are one of the most important parts of our society, despite what school might teach you. In a thousand years, our descendants will look back on us and it won't be the forty-five hours a week we spent in an office that they'll see. It'll be our art. Our descendants will see our literature, our pottery, our paintings, our poetry, perhaps even recordings of our dance and theatre if we're lucky. These are the things our children will remember us for. So, why should those careers be considered less valid than any other, just because they may be less financially stable?
The goal of the Scribes In Schools Initiative is to get successful creatives into schools around the country to speak to students and show them that there can be another way. We are especially interested in speaking in rural or low-decile schools that tend to have less opportunities than others.
While donations from the schools are welcomed, they are not required. If you would like to register your school for the Scribes in Schools Initiative, or if you are a creative who would like to volunteer their time, please contact us today!
