Kids Share Workshops, Inc. (“KSWI”), a Vermont nonprofit corporation that provides cross-cultural art and literacy workshops to students in Vermont and abroad. Each annual Kids Share Workshop has a mirror component in Vermont (we conduct a Workshop in one or two classrooms in Vermont, and a matching Workshop abroad.) Our Workshops guide students to write about themselves, their communities, and to illustrate their narratives. At the end of the annual Workshop we print a beautiful, full-color book containing the students’ cross-cultural illustrated works. These books, with their “kids-eye” views of differing cultures, are featured in Montpelier’s Kellogg-Hubbard Library and many other libraries throughout Vermont. We also sell them to raise funds to support the Workshops and the communities we touch.
