Summary: The leaders from Red Clay Writing Project and Deep Center—recipient of the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award—joined us for a conversation about their ongoing relationship and how we all might work together in order to create the richest learning ecosystems for all young people by joining forces inside and outside of schools, across organizations and learning institutions.


Excerpt from Show

Megan Ave'Lallemant —Deep Center Programs Director:

My involvement in Red Clay validated me as a writer and then again as a leader. Just like many of our Deep authors, I needed affirmation from my peers and from my teachers when sharing my writing. Receiving genuine encouragement emboldened me in a way I never could have imagined. I don't need decades of schooling in this field to be relevant; I need to write."
