DIGITAL EDUCATION PROGRAM: LAS HISTORIAS VERDADERAS

STG’s Digital Education Program (DEP) focuses on merging the arts and digital communication into one. We launched our DEP program in 2018 with DEAR EVAN HANSEN and in 2019, we are working with John Leguizamo’s LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS. The DEP: LAS HISTORIAS VERDADERAS will focus on researching, writing a report and creating an art project around a Latinx historical figure. The projects will be shared via social media, teaching students digital and social responsibility. This program is intended for Latinx high school populations. Once projects are completed, students will be provided with tickets to John Leguizamo’s performance of LATIN HISTORY FOR MORON on October 23, 2019 at The Moore Theatre.
