I am pleased to announce the formation of The Touchstone Center Archival Outreach Project. The purpose of this project is to share with individuals, schools, and organizations, the extensive documentary material the Center has collected since its beginnings in 1969. Through workshops, performances, exhibitions, and publications, the Center hopes to use these archival materials towards initiating new and stimulating ways to continue our exploration of the role of the arts and the imaginative process within all areas of learning.

As part of the Archival Outreach Project, we have also posted information about our newly created and ongoing Archival Digital Indexes. Compiled and overseen by the Center’s archivist, Jaclyn Majewski, the Digital Indexes are a detailed thematic listing of our digitized multi-media materials that were all part of the Center’s programming in schools, museums and environmental organizations.

To initiate the Archival Outreach Project to the public, we will be presenting a group of workshops, conversations and performances centered on the themes of wonder and the imagination, the play of thought, children’s poetic expressiveness, and the role of imagining in teaching and learning.  Taking place in schools and cultural institutions throughout the city, detailed information about these programs will be announced in the coming months on our website, Facebook page and this email.
