Back in New York City, the crew is gearing up for a new school year- some Peacemovers were trained last weekend! Here's what being a facilitator means to them:

Over the next week or so, we encourage you all to reflect on why and how you move this world; we couldn't do it all without your tremendous support! Have a great week!

Mover Monday

Move This World is doing amazing work with the incredibly brave residents at the Urban Teacher Center in both D.C. and Baltimore. Our U.S. Program Coordinator, Cameron, was thrilled to get the opportunity to spend a few days at UTC.

While she was there, residents took time to explore the dynamics of self through group images.

If you want to know more about Move This World and our cause, look into coming to our 5th Annual Global Summit in Transforming Education Through Creative Practices. Take the opportunity to join forces with other visionaries to co-create the change we all want to see in the world.  Learn more about the event, its speakers, and how to buy tickets here. Have a great week!

Mover Monday: Summer Happenings

It's been quite a summer at Move This World! All while gearing up for our Summer Nights GaLA and Global Summit, the team has been planning and implementing programs to gear up for the upcoming school year.  Just a couple weeks ago, Move This World had the opportunity to go to Boston for City Year's summer academy.  MTW worked with some incredible staff and corp members on embodied mindfulness and self-awareness. Check out some participant takeaways.

City Year is an education based non-profit organization located in Boston.  You can learn more about them on their website!

If you're in L.A., don't forget to buy a ticket to the GaLA this Wednesday! Join us for an open bar, silent auction, a lot of dancing, and the opportunity to support a great cause. If you're not in L.A. - maybe use this as an excuse for vacation? Have a good week!

Mover Monday | Meet the Interns

It's time to meet the Move This World summer interns!

Erica is a sophomore at Swarthmore College studying sociology and dance.

Fun fact #1: "I choreographed a dance piece around an art installation at my college. You can see it here!"
Fun fact #2: "As a baby, I was dancing in highchairs before I could walk."

"I move this world because I believe that creative movement is a powerful tool for understanding yourself and connecting to others, and I want to share the joy of movement with as many people as I can" 

Linda is a Yale grad and just finished her first year teaching pre-k in Tulsa, OK.

Fun fact #1: "I am equally obsessed with the natural landscapes and the concrete jungles of the world." 
Fun fact #2: "I once ate 7 hot dogs in a row."

"I move this world because I'm convinced that what we achieve inwardly through creatively expressing ourselves will change our outer reality."

Sarah is a senior at Northwestern University studying broadcast journalism and economics.

Fun fact #1: "I'm obsessed with talk shows, especially morning television. Oprah is my hero."
Fun fact #2: "I wish I owned an elephant."

"I move this world because creative movement gave me the chance to break out of my shell and be comfortable with who I am.  I want others to have that same opportunity. "
