Driftseed 

Driftseed is a nonprofit organization working to build a better world for women and girls through education, outreach, and documentary storytelling. Driftseed's award-winning documentary film Little Stones follows the uplifting stories of four women using rap, graffiti, fashion and dance to fight for women’s rights around the world.

Driftseed — in partnership with the University of Michigan School of Education—created a series of lesson plans and arts workshops for high school students based on the Little Stones documentary. The purpose of this classroom initiative is to not only educate future leaders on global violence against women, but also to inspire innovative, collaborative, and non-traditional means of creating social change through the arts. The lessons in the toolkit are aligned with common core standards and offer teachers and students learning resources  to help them implement an arts-based project in their communities, creating an experience beyond both the film and the classroom.
