Learn about opportunities to engage communities outside the K-12 classroom. This symposium will feature a keynote by Eric Booth and a full day of programming focused on restorative justice, inclusion, creative aging, and municipal government.
Sponsored in partnership by the Division of Continuing Studies at The University of the Arts and Mural Arts Philadelphia. Support for Building Your Tool Kit: A Teaching Artist Symposium has been provided by the Stockton Rush Bartol Foundation, plus in-kind support from Yards Brewing Co. and Blick Art Materials. This symposium is supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
Teaching artists bring their creative knowledge to K–12 classrooms, but there are many new opportunities for artists to engage communities that are outside of the traditional classroom. This symposium will introduce practitioners to experts in the fields of restorative justice, inclusion, creative aging, and even municipal government.
Reconsider how your artistic practice can be transferred into these new learning settings. We will showcase practical tools and skills to support your development in these areas. http://bit.ly/uarts_tas
