Young people are demanding change, but demands are nothing without a plan, tools for success & examples from those who’ve gone before us. On May 1st, through a partnership with entertainment company  @levelforward@advocatesforyouth Youth launched a new Youth Activist Toolkit with resources to help young organizers take action on issues they care most about. Our youth has stood for so much already, and it's incredible to be represented in this toolkit as examples of how to take action. (You may notice Sawyer and Andrea as examples!) The Youth Activist Toolkit, which was developed with youth writers and activists, is a detailed guide to help develop a plan, organize a coalition, and define and implement strategies to achieve measurable social impact goals. The toolkit serves as a social action companion to the new #americanwomanmovie which made its worldwide premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 28. The film raises questions about power: who has it and who doesn’t, and how best to change that. The story’s center is a young pacifist who is wrestling with her choices as she joins a cohort of young radicals and their kidnapped convert. With accessible guides to power structures and how to build power — the resource is available for free for those who are spurred to action inspired by the film. The partnership engaged #AMPLIFIER, a design lab that builds art to amplify the voices of grassroots movements, to participate in the development of the toolkit through their #WetheFuture Campaign. The Toolkit shares best practices on how to use storytelling and art as a tool to engage communities and change minds.

Saturday was a heartfelt experience witnessing the #ShineMSD and the #CoralSprings / #Parkland community to come together to build an incredible #temple with @coralspringsmoa and #DavidBest crew Projects. Some highlights included: David speaking to the students about the power of creating a temple to hold all their hard, uneasy and messy thoughts and feelings. Students shared their drawings from their phones, and David inspired, encouraged them to be guided by their feelings to let them go. Crew members genuinely listened to the students thoughts and taught them how to build a structure of such immense proportions and significance. One of the students was given the opportunity to make and install pillars of the temple...building the foundation of the temple! Witnessing the connection between parents and community members was incredible.

shineMSD

We are excited to announce a new partnership launching this weekend at the Sundance Film Festival! Shine MSD is joining #GunNeutral in collaboration with @levelforward in support of the entertainment industry’s commitment to greater social responsibility on the issue of gun violence. To protect the artistic freedom of storytellers and the essential authenticity of their work, and to account for it with initiatives that offset the portrayal of gun violence in films, shows, games and music, Shine MSD stands by the industry’s commitment to supporting the safety of students by embracing Gun Neutral, as passionately as our students support the arts. Gun Neutral is investing funds that come from production budgets in the destruction of illegal weapons and in programs like #CampShine, which use art as a healing mechanism for survivors of trauma. Whether it's filmmaking, music, art, dance or theater using creative arts therapy is a path to healing and gives survivors of trauma their voices back. Gun Neutral stands alongside the 42 million young people in our country, helping them lead yet another movement of greater social responsibility. More information can be found here: https://www.levelforward.co/gun-neutral-pledge #GunNeutral #ShineMSD #Shine #BeTheChange #ArtHeals #InItTogether #GunSense #Sundance #GunNeutral #ShineMSD #ShineOne #BeTheChange #ArtHeals

We offer #CampShine because Sawyer and Andrea wanted to give kids in our community the gift that writing and singing the song “Shine” gave them - healing through the arts.‬ ‪So, having four of our camp students on the #adcouncildinner stage (in Manhattan!) was something truly special. After the February 14 darkness, we can now begin to see light and hear hope. We truly appreciate the spotlight we and our camp participants had this week with the support of our creative arts therapists. ‪#GoodWorks

It's Thanksgiving! Arts doesn't just help our families heal in the wake of an incredibly painful, unforeseen tragedy, it also reminds us what makes us human and what we share in our common humanity on a daily basis. We would love to know - which piece of music, art, film, theatre, dance, book, photography, etc inspires you and brings you to that grateful place? Which artistic expression reminds you of our shared humanity? #healingart #happythanksgivng #msdstrong #parkland #parklandstrong #grateful #music #film #tv #family

New Song Link in Bio!! Another incredible world premiere of a song by our Camp Shine Session Two participants in collaboration with Motivational Edge!

This summer has been beyond words. We started with the thought of giving kids in our community the same opportunity that Sawyer and Andrea had through Shine - healing through arts and music. With your help, it became a reality. We couldn't have done it without the support of the Parkland community, the participants, the parents willing to support our efforts, our directors who came from all over the world to make this happen, the student volunteers who helped make this possible, and of course, the creative arts therapists who took time out of their lives to create this camp. We are humbled by what has transpired. And with that, we closed this summer's camp on Thursday. We miss everyone already but we are full with the memories we made and the healing that has transpired. Please think of donating so that we can make this camp possible again for the community next summer, and host events throughout the year. With Love, Shine MSD #MSDStrong #ShineMSD #ParklandStrong #Arts #CreativeArts #Parkland
