Story of the Month: The Tree-Hugger
The Red Curtain Project (RCP) is a digital storytelling project that creates dynamic performances of cultural stories reflecting the diverse communities and voices of America. An educational initiative by Thresh, RCP is geared toward children 6–12, inspiring them to take pride in their own ancestry while celebrating the beauty amongst other communities.
Inspiring Students to Create!
Brooklyn High School of the Arts
We conducted a series of storytelling workshops with junior and senior high school students in The Select Choir at Brooklyn High School of the Arts. Students reinterpreted RCP's stories, composing unique lyrics and musical scores using Soundtrap software.

The mission of The Red Curtain Project is to inspire kids and young adults to unleash their own incredible storytelling superpowers, from reinterpreting stories through sound and music to illustrating them.
