Building off of the success of 2011’s One Day: The Global Citizen Project, Cabot School is proud to announce the launch of our 2013 project, Home, a Playing For Change style music video of student musicians and singers throughout New England.
The Global Citizen Project is an interdisciplinary project of the Cabot middle school engaging students through social studies, science and digital media arts and music. In 2011 the students started a production company, Global Citizen Productions and produced a “Playing For Change” style music video featuring over 300 Vermont student musicians and singers that has been viewed nearly 5000 times and continues to raise money to support music education efforts across the globe. From the filming and directing to the logistics and final editing process, Cabot students were responsible for nearly every detail of production.
With the launch of this year’s theme, Home, students will explore global issues of water rights, conservation, economics, resources distribution. Through this expeditionary study, the Cabot students will identify a global non-profit to support and then begin production of a music video, Home, featuring student musicians and singers. Although we are still deciding, it is likely that the song for this year’s video will be an arrangement of Home, by the Ethiopian-American band Bole 2 Harlem.
With an eye to the broader world, this year’s video will reach beyond Vermont’s borders to include student musicians and singers throughout New England and will reach out to refugee communities throughout the region to share in the experience.
The overall goal of this project is to help students to think critically about the nuances of our planet and to effect change through the development of an inspiring creative product.
This project is open to all student musicians, singers and ensembles. Please join us!
