Teaching Artist Symposium: Working in Alternative Spaces
Saturday, June 23, 2018, 8:30am-6:00pm
at the University of the Arts
Teaching artists have brought their creative knowledge to K–12 classrooms, but there are many 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 practice in correctional facilities, inclusion and accessibility, creative aging, and even municipal government. We will showcase practical tools and skills to support your development in these areas; through panel discussions and breakout sessions. Join us to consider how your artistic practice can be transferred into these community settings.
The Symposium will feature a keynote address from Eric Booth and a day of programming at The University of the Arts. The event is made possible by The University of the Arts, Mural Arts Philadelphia and the Stockton Rush Bartol Foundation.
To apply for a scholarship, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, May 25 with a brief paragraph about your work as a teaching artist and what you hope to learn from the symposium.
