No Small Matter Screening

The Frances McClelland Institute for Children, Youth, and Families will hold a free showing of No Small Matter on March 4, 2020 from 5:00 PM-8:00 PM in McClelland Park Room 105 (650 N. Park Ave. Tucson, AZ).

Before the showing of No Small Matter, they invite invite guests to take a closer look at a 28-foot, six-screen photography installation called Showing (work x family).

After the film, they will host a lively conversation around the documentary and art exhibit with an invited panelist. This event is co-sponsored with United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona.

No Small Matter is the first feature documentary to explore the most overlooked, underestimated, and powerful force for change in America today: early childhood education. Through poignant stories and surprising humor, the film lays out the overwhelming evidence for the importance of the first five years, and reveals how our failure to act on that evidence has resulted in an everyday crisis for American families, and a slow-motion catastrophe for the country.

Showing (work x family) is an invitation to take a close look at the interplay between work and family life. The 28-foot, six-screen photography installation combines landmark commissioned photographs of pregnant women in the workplace, a curated selection of works by contemporary photographers, and photographs by high school students who participated in work x family, Working Assumptions’ nationwide education program for high school photography classes.
