Creative Connections! NYC Arts In Education Roundtable School-Year Kick-off, TASK Party and ITAC Mixer
The NYC Arts in Education Roundtable invites all members of the arts in education field to connect with delegates from the International Teaching Artist Conference (ITAC) and join a fun and creative celebration of the new school year. Based on the work of contemporary artist Oliver Herring, TASK is an improvisational art-making event that allows participants to collaborate with other artists and educators in a supportive environment. Participants write a task on a piece of paper, adding it to the “TASK pool.” Participants then select tasks at random and interpret them, using an array of available materials. The result: a room full of spontaneous art and performance projects happening at the same time! Alex Santiago-Jirau, Director of Education at New York Theatre Workshop, will coordinate the event, which promises to be an art-full and friendly way to network with fellow arts educators and administrators. Snacks and beverages will be provided.

Please note that the ITAC Conference itself is at capacity. The ITAC4 Digital Conference will be active online if you would like to continue to engage with the international teaching artist community post-TASK Party. Online participation is available via live stream and includes plenary sessions, curated interviews and conversations, along with access to special web-only content. All of these online sessions will be archived on the ITAC website after the conference, so you can relive the excitement of this vibrant community long after the conference ends.
