KEY PROGRAMS Kemetic Yoga:
Enjoy a 90-minute session of calming, therapeutic yoga using ancient Kemetic postures and teachings every Saturday in the Spady’s Williams Cottage, adjacent to the museum.
Youth who arrive at the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum for camp forgo the usual pool, zoo and park experiences, opting instead to learn the art, crafts and expression of African-American cultures for $50 per child. The schedule will feature teaching artists, imparting lessons of historical importance and exhibit creation to the next generation. The YCEC is a six-week intensive program from June to August that focuses on building self-esteem, cultural identity and social and civic responsibility in youth. The program was created to address the need to provide youth with an arts and cultural heritage immersion program to enhance the Palm Beach County School District’s black history curriculum in a historical environment. continued from 3
