On February 26, 2020, the NYC Arts in Education Roundtable will host its annual Day of Learning on Equity and Inclusion. This year’s learning exchange will focus on Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Pedagogy. We will explore how our roles as arts educators and administrators can support a student centered learning space that honors cultural identities and promotes social-emotional well-being in the classroom. To align and sustain our practice with the values of this pedagogy, we are inviting young people from our arts community to join us as presenters and co-learners for this special event. Each registration will include a catered breakfast and lunch. A lactation room will be available.
Featuring a keynote address by Poet, Writer, & Associate Professor at Teachers College, Columbia University, Dr. Yolanda Sealey-Ruiz!

What is a “Day of Learning”?
Our annual Days of Learning are 1-day intensive learning opportunities that provide specific strategies to advance equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) within the classroom, in cultural institutions, and beyond. The day’s content is designed to address the specific needs of arts education practitioners and focuses on social justice issues relevant to our unique ecosystem.
