2019 Application: Creative Reuse Educator Empowerment Program
In Summer/Fall 2019 and Winter/Spring 2020, Creative Reuse will partner with up to 15 educators from a diversity of settings to participate in a hands-on professional development workshop series that focuses on environmental issues, resource conservation, and creative education.
This series will emphasize collaboration between participating educators and Creative Reuse Education staff to find authentic and meaningful ways of integrating interdisciplinary environmental, maker, STEAM, and art-focused learning experiences into the participants’ existing curriculum/programs.
Participants will also receive a ReCreative Partnership (membership for Creative Reuse's discount program), a voucher to receive free materials, and a site visit during the 2019-2020 academic year wherein Creative Reuse teaching artists will come to the participant's school/organization to support one of their lessons/projects.
Though not required, applicants are encouraged to apply as interdisciplinary pairs with the goal of having two educators from different disciplines working together on a common curricular initiative. Even if applying as a pair, each individual educator must complete this application.
THE APPLICATION DEADLINE IS midnight on FRIDAY, JUNE 14th! Applicants will be notified of the results within two weeks following the application deadline.
