Ariel Horowitz awarded 2018 From The Top Alumni Leadership Grant – April 23, 2018
April 23, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Grant supports Ariel’s work as founding director for The Heartbeat Project
The Heartbeat Project provides music and math education for Navajo (Diné) K-12 students living on the Reservation. This annual workshop combines the fundamentals of music and math while cultivating a safe space for students to gain confidence. The teachers offer Western classical music training in an atmosphere of cultural exchange that acknowledges the impact of colonialism on indigenous peoples. They are also learners who respectfully engage with Diné music, cultures and customs.
