Join the NYC Arts in Education Roundtable in a community conversation around the challenges on navigating unemployment.  Roundtable Co-Chair Sobha Kavanakudiyil moderates a conversation with educator Daniel Sullivan, administrator Erika Atkins, and the Roundtable Community to discuss issues around applying for unemployment, and to crowd-source and share resources for both administrators and teaching artists. Community members are encouraged to share information as we seek solutions for staying solvent and staying sane during this unprecedented moment in arts education.
