Parent Paideia Seminar – February 23

Join us Thursday, February 23 from 6-7 p.m. for an insightful discussion of Disney’s Encanto. Encanto has been praised for its positive representation and reflection of diversity. Upon its release in 2021, it generated a social media wave. Numerous posts showing videos of children overjoyed at the sight of a cartoon character that looked like them, their parents, grandparents, and community appeared on the internet. People of all ages continue to share how they feel represented and uplifted by seeing, finally, themselves, their noses, curls, and skin tones in a major Disney film. The movie’s success underscores the importance of giving both voice and image to the true diversity of the world in which we live. Free babysitting for potty trained children ages 3-12 available; sign up here.
