Come see the faces of education in Jacksonville.  This Tuesday evening, September 13 from 4-9pm, we will be hosting a Community Opening for One in Three: Lets Solve Our Dropout Crisis.  As always, Tuesday night is FREE to the public thanks to The Players.  Join us for an evening full of fun activities:

Video Recording

  • Our new youth team, ONEpush. is starting an experiment in online democracy. The project seeks to get as many people as possible on digital video talking about their own experience in school. They know that every person has a story about a person, a moment or an idea that changed the course of their education. Speak out today—visit the Art Connections area for more information on how YOU can participate in this innovative project.

Art Project

  • Museum Educators will help you make a collage self-portrait and poetry.

Galleries

  • Meet the students featured in the exhibition and get the conversation started about the state of the education system in Duval County.
