Our Shared Future: Imagining a New Landscape for Teaching Artists
- We are working with teaching artists who will serve as event reporters. They’ll capture their perspectives on the event, and we’ll publish their work in a report that will come out in May. You’ll be able to find information about the report on the AEP and TAG websites.
- We hope this is just the first in a series of conversations about this important topic! Make sure you’re subscribed to ArtsEd Digest to get information about future opportunities.
On April 5-7, 2022, join us for a free virtual event in support of teaching artists across the country. Our Shared Future: Imagining a New Landscape for Teaching Artists will feature sessions that dig into the current realities and hopeful futures of teaching artistry.
This event is made possible by funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, U.S. Department of Education and Hewlett Foundation and by planning support from the Teaching Artists Guild and Arts Education Partnership.
About the Event
Are you interested in teaching artistry and its critical role in strengthening learning as we begin to think about pandemic recovery? We invite you to convene virtually to network and learn from and with teaching artists about the arts education ecosystem and how we can strengthen their role in the system. There is no cost to participate in this event.
We know that teaching artists have the potential to change the world. In this time of immense struggle, join us for artmaking, panel discussions, roundtables and small-group conversations as we collaborate to build more inclusive environments for learners of all ages.
