Passport to Nigeria was a collaboration between Global Kids’ Online Leadership Program and the Museum for African Art.  Passport to Nigeria was designed to engage youth in an in-depth exploration of the arts, cultures, and history of Nigeria through an interdisciplinary and hands-on approach.  Students explored history, visual arts, dance, music, and food traditions, and covered concepts such as how art can draw from cultural sources and be a reflection of one’s values and traditions, and how art and music are powerful forms of expression, especially in times of oppression. Students gained a broad understanding of Nigeria, made connections to their own lives, and used digital media in a variety of ways, including research and reflection. After each session, students video blogged about their experiences and reflected on what they learn. At the end of the program, youth produced a video to share with their peers and communities.
