Supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, this year’s webpages and workbook highlight both the creative process and final artwork of student projects in Central Oregon, Portland, and during Camp Caldera around our 2016–2017 theme “Fire–Spark, Ignite, and Transform“.
We hope that you’ll explore the webpages alongside this year’s companion workbook, which has instructions on how you can create similar creative projects on your own, and has space for brainstorming ideas and writing reflections.
The Geography of We is Caldera’s ongoing multilayered, interdisciplinary project focused on deepening learning and offering variety over the seven-year period that Caldera works with youth in middle and high school.
This year (July 2016–June 2017), youth focused on storytelling techniques that ranged from traditional forms to cutting-edge digital media. Professional artists in film, animation, photography, writing, music, painting, sculpture, and design guided students through the exploration of their creativity while focusing on a central theme of the fire and transformation. Each year, Geography of We is focused on one of seven environmental themes.
You can view all four years of Geography of We workbooks below:
Please email us at Caldera@CalderaArts.org if you’d like your own 2016-2017 printed workbook (or any of our previous years) and we’d be happy to mail one to you.
