  • Supporting Individual Artists: Teaching Artist Edition

    Contains 2 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 12/12/2019 at 3:00 PM (EST)

    This session will reframe the question of supporting teaching artists and provide actionable new answers to questions about ways to support them. The reframing derives from new understandings of how the field is growing in the real world, and recognition of the limitations of the ways we have traditionally worked. Too often “support” defaults to simplistic consideration of money and benefits, when a more holistic view (which includes attention to money and benefits) allows for a wider range of options and actions.

    This session will reframe the question of supporting teaching artists and provide actionable new answers to questions about ways to support them. The reframing derives from new understandings of how the field is growing in the real world, and recognition of the limitations of the ways we have traditionally worked.  Too often “support” defaults to simplistic consideration of money and benefits, when a more holistic view (which includes attention to money and benefits) allows for a wider range of options and actions. 

    Learning Objectives:

    • Participants will rethink their understandings of the national (and international) teaching artist field.
    • They will encounter with a wider variety of tools to support the growth in size, diversity and quality of local teaching artist talent pools, tools they may use in their home settings.
    • They will discover new ways in which teaching artists are employed to accomplish seven different purposes—which invites new ways to assess impact, develop productive partnerships, and create greater visibility for the field.
