Roundtable members are starting to talk about the workshop they would like to propose for the 2015 Face to Face conference.
By Jenny Clarke
The RFP for the 2015 Face to Face Conference is out! Arts in Education practitioners and experts in the field are starting to think about the kinds of sessions they could bring to the 500+ arts education professions who will convene for two days of exploration and sharing on Tuesday, April 7 and Wednesday, April 8 2015.
At the recent Proposal Information Session, facilitated by Conference Co-Chairs Kathleen Christie and Joe Giardina, representatives from 12 organizations learned more about the process of applying and facilitating a workshop and shared their ideas. Christie and Giardina outlined the priorities that the Proposal Review Committee will be looking for, including: detailed and well-developed session descriptions; sessions that will allow attendees to explore something new at a deep level; new content; and new voices. The Committee is looking for sessions that give participants a sense that they have learned something highly relevant that they can implement in their work and that they could not find elsewhere.
The Roundtable usually receives approximately 65 session proposals and selects 35 of them (36 in 2014). The revised deadline for proposals is September 24. See the RFP for submission details.
The Evaluation Report from Face to Face 2014 will be available soon. If you would like feedback from a session you facilitated, contact Jenny Clarke, Managing Director of the Roundtable: firstname.lastname@example.org.
