Arts in Education Week 2018

During this National Arts in Education Week, Americans for the Arts will focus professional development opportunities on better understanding broadening and diversifying the leadership pipeline for the field of arts education, building from our previous research. To achieve goals of equity in access to arts learning, we must have leaders (and the pipeline which empower them) to be equitable, diverse, and inclusive.  Each day during the week of September 10-14, you are invited to hear from leaders about the latest research, resources, and strategies towards this goal. These daily webinars will be held at 3:00 p.m. (EST) and last no more than 30 minutes. To continue the conversation, join Jeff M. Poulin (@JeffMPoulin) and special guests for an #ArtsEdChat from 8:00 p.m.–9:00 p.m. (EST) by following the specified hashtag. You can either view them live or throughout the week.
