ATSU ADALETEY JOINS FORCES WITH CHACHUNG CRUZ IN CLIMATE CHANGE CONFERENCE

Pat Cruz has worked in arts education for over 25 years. She is so distraught by what is happening to our world. So thoughtful, she was trying to think of what she can do to help so many amazing artists and good friends who have lost work due to the pandemic. Through her work as an arts teacher (now-online) and through social media connections, she saw there is a great need for engaging activities for children and adults who are staying safe and staying home for the common good.

She realized — this is the time for the non-profit she has been dreaming about:

The Transcontinental Educator Artist Collective for Humanity — TEACH !

From 13–16th July, 2021, TEACH will engage people from around the world to re-look at the issue on Climate Change. Atsu Adaletey, together with Dzolali Theatre House will join forces with Pat Cruz and other great hearts to address this challenge.
