I'm often asked for online resources for Austin-area parents. Here are a few sites/practitioners I love.
Sparkle Stories: Inspiring and educational audio stories for children and families
Alt Ed Austin: Resource for alternative education school options in the Austin area
Whole Movement Center: Body-centered psychotherapy for children and families
Carrie Contey: Parent educator and coach
Zell Miller and I are worked on this project for Fusebox on April 15, 2017.. We partnered with The Design Institute for Health - UT Dell Medical School, Eastside Memorial High School, Southwest Key, Mid America Arts Alliance. Using the lenses of community health, arts, and culture we see the cafe as an opportunity to address multiple health challenges facing the Govalle-Johnston Terrace neighborhood including access to healthy food, cooking classes, fitness, and cultural expression while simultaneously seeking to preserve the history and culture of the neighborhood.
In His Shoes- The Father/Son Project is a documentary theatre performance examining the roles Father's and Son's play in our lives. After a successful workshop in August 2016, we are taking this project to the next level in September 2017. Co-creators Jason Phelps, Zell Miller, and Jeff Johnson are all fathers, sons, educators, and performers. We have interviewed a handful of fathers and sons for this project and are eager to broaden the scope of stories and experience to reflect the changing cultural landscape of Austin and beyond.
