  • Arts Education: A Shared Responsibility

    Contains 2 Component(s) Recorded On: 09/17/2014

    Is our goal to advocate for arts education that is only or primarily taught by certified educators? Or, is a mix of instruction by arts specialists, teaching artists, and general classroom teachers truly best?

    Arts education is a unique model within the United States' education system, in that arts learning is truly provided by a myriad of stakeholders—certified teachers, parents, afterschool programs, community centers, etc. Sometimes this happens in a well-orchestrated manner. Sometimes these relationships are fraught with strife, such as making a decision to spend money on a certified arts instructor versus a community-based program that would serve more students but on a less frequent basis.

    Is our goal to advocate for arts education that is only or primarily taught by certified educators? Or, is a mix of instruction by arts specialists, teaching artists, and general classroom teachers truly best? How can our field lead the way in education reform as we look at a framework of shared delivery and shared leadership for instruction in our content area? As technology continues to rapidly change, and budgets continue to decline, this model of shared responsibility might just be the wave of the future in all of education.

    First, learn about the theory and the history of the Shared Endeavor philosophy. Second, learn from a panel of experts in shared delivery of arts education in their communities from across America. And third, hear from an arts advocate who used this model to advocate for continued quality arts education in her community!

  • Arts pARTnerships Where You Don't Expect It

    Contains 2 Component(s) Recorded On: 07/23/2014

    The arts have always had the power to excite people, but how can we tap into the arena of avid sports spectators to increase that energy even more?

    The arts have always had the power to excite people, but how can we tap into the arena of avid sports spectators to increase that energy even more? pARTnerships can happen in places where we least expect it, and collaborations with the sports world are ones that might not come to mind right away, but they can also produce excellent rewards. Learn from two examples of how the arts world has merged with sports: Margy Waller of Art on the Streets will join artist Pam Kravetz in a discussion of how they incorporated art into Cincinnati's Flying Pig Marathon; and ArtsWave's Rebecca Bromels will walk us through how they formed a great working relationship with a nationally franchised sports team-the Cincinnati Reds-through their Art Pass program, Art in the Park days, and more.
