Identity Activities

Provide opportunities through art, music or writing for youth to express their own identities, history, affiliations, values, intentions, and needs, etc. Explore different facets of ascribed or acquired identity: ethnicity, race, gender, religion, language, geography, sexual orientation, vocation, avocation, and so on. Find intersections and commonalities between various identities, and find hybrid identities that entwine features due to exchange, migration, or colonization. Evaluate reasons and map pathways by which features of identity traveled from one nation, region, or culture to another.
