Tapestry of the Commons for school kids in development this summer

AfD co-chair Nancy Price recently returned from a two-week residency on the theme of “water and the commons” at the Blue Mountain Center in up-state New York along with a group of artists, filmmakers, and writers and two other water activists. She worked on an outline for a public school curriculum for the Tapestry of the Commons beginning with the “water” and “rules” ribbons.

Nancy says: “I made good progress on the curriculum and am beginning to reach out to teachers I’ve met about using the Tapestry in their classrooms. If you have a friend or family member teaching in grades 4-12 who might be interested, please let me know at nancytprice@juno.com.

Nancy also reports that she will be writing a monthly column on “any topic of her choosing” for The People’s Vanguard of Davis, the new on-line investigative newspaper and blog. “You can be sure” she says, “that I’ll keep the issue of corporate power and rule at the forefront” of any topic I address, just as we have in Justice Rising over the years on a range of important themes.”
