It's time for #LOVEinclusion 2017! This year, our focus is on simple and fun activities for students to do at school to celebrate inclusion & ability and raise awareness about Unified Theater throughout their school during the month of February 2017.
Each school can choose their level of involvement - want to get your whole school involved for the entire week with a table in the cafeteria? Great! Or maybe it's better for your group to have #LOVEinclusion activties with your cast during rehearsal? We love it!
#LOVEinclusion 2017 will include two main activities: the LoveABILITY Mural & the Go ORANGE for Inclusion Pledge.
LoveAbility Mural (Click here for printable instructions and templates)
Step One: Think about your own awesome abilities & talents! Then, create a heart-shaped Valentine to yourself - make it as specific or general as you want and celebrate your awesomeness with glitter, markers, fuzzy stickers or anything else you want!
Step Two: Combine your entire group’s LoveABILITY Valentines into a LoveABILITY Mural for your entire school to see!
Go Orange for Inclusion Pledges (Click here for printable pledge sheets)
Step One: Print the Go Orange for Inclusion Pledges. Together as a cast, or within your wider school community, read the pledge and have everyone sign their own. If you're doing this during a UT rehearsal, try to take time to discuss the different parts of the pledge and what actions you can take to make them a reality.
Step Two: Decide what to do with the pledges. Maybe everyone takes their pledge home so they can look back at it and remember their promise. Or perhaps they can hang next to your LoveAbility mural!
For any schools that share their activities with us on instagram using the hashtag #LOVEinclusion, you will be entered to win a package of fun UT gear and goodies. Winner will be selected during the first week of March.
