    020-RM Songs For Change

    In this episode, you'll hear how the children at an elementary school became rock stars. Pōmaikaʻi Elementary School has become a model for how to use the arts to inspire children to reach their highest potential in the classroom, in the community, & beyond. We sat down with 2 educators, Melinda Caroll & Rae Takemoto, & heard the stories about an innovative arts integration project that combines classroom learning, science, garden learning, & music. Together, with the school garden as the theme, Melinda & Rae lead the children of the school through the entire process of creating a CD, from songwriting, to professional recording, to sharing the music with the world. Melinda & Rae believe strongly in creative potential. They share with us fantastic stories about their experiences & observations of how the arts can be woven into schools with powerful results.

    Crystal Arnold helps others define financial success in their own terms & cultivate true wealth. She is the founder of Money-Morphosis, the director of education at the Post Growth Institute, & is a money-wise woman & mother. Isn’t it odd that as important as money is in shaping our lives & the rules Western society, most people have a hard time talking about it? This has to do with our stories around money. In this interview Crystal talks about how she defines wealth, the ways in which our monetary system affects our world, local economies, not–for–profits, the role of women in shifting our economic story & more. Crystal inspires us to look at economy in new & resilient ways. We hope you find this interview inspiring too.

    018-SB Grow Some Good – Story Bridge

    018-SB Grow Some Good – Story Bridge

    Here are some stories that come straight from the garden – the school garden. We collected these stories when The Story Connective was invited to do a Story Bridge workshop with Grow Some Good, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating hands-on, outdoor learning experiences in schools. Our participants - garden coordinators, administrators, & board members - were prompted to talk about a time they experienced in the garden that a child will never forget. We can't wait to share with you the heartfelt stories that emerged.
    Special thanks to Grow Some Good & the Maui Arts & Cultural Center for helping make this Story Bridge possible. And thank you to our tellers: Bradley, Jadda, Kathy, Maurice, Judy, & Cynthia. Special thanks as well to Richard Geer, the founder of The Story Bridge Method & Qinghong Wei, Story Bridge's executive director, & the Story Bridge Team for all your community & support.
