Our recent election and the devastating aftermath has created a surge of uncertainty, fear, and anxiety. The current political climate has summoned artists and arts educators around the world to respond in meaningful and powerful ways. CtC is no different, and we join the fight against oppression and fear via the arts in education. We hope to confront these issues with compassion and fierce regard for the rights of those who have been unjustly targeted.
We at CtC will utilize this summit to unite both our shared concerns and hopes for a better future. We will collectively grapple with these questions: How does the union of the arts and education help us envision a future that celebrates difference, creates equity and includes all voices? Can deep conversation through the arts build bridges and break down walls?
Join us in providing a safe space for art, activism and liberating educational practices.
The open summit relies on powerful voices coming to the table. We are seeking compelling proposals for brave conversations that create active engagement and deep, artful dialogue about arts in education. The open summit invites all interested parties to propose a conversation. Brave conversations will be curated to include those that promote the most in-depth dialogue around difference - a dialogue that explores complexity, envisions and works toward change, and allows for multiple voices and perspectives to be in concert with each other. We encourage submissions that are interactive and explore through art-making and hands-on activities. Our goal is to propel powerful work forward in arts in education and we hope you will help us begin the dialogue. Note: Sessions are 90 minutes.
Conversation Proposal Deadline: July 1, 2017
