PS 11 Q: Katherine Phelon School
Student Population: 504
PS 11, partnered with CityLore and with the assistance of local artists, is continuing with the school-wide theme of
"Exploring our Communities and Cultures." CityLore will conduct a six-session parent workshop where parents will
participate in a walking and food tasting tour of their community, and then explore their own cultural backgrounds through
visualization exercises and the creation of a personal "subway token" of cultural images. Students and parents will
engage in City Play, an opportunity to share and learn each other's childhood games. Parents will be given scavenger
hunt questions to ask local artists and shop owners, which will facilitate an ethnographer's "reading" of the neighborhood.
The program will culminate in working with George Zavala, a visual artist who will help the participants visually represent
their sense of place and play with the creation of a cultural map of the community.
