As Teaching Artists and education professionals, we know that reflection and celebration play an important role in meaningful learning. In this workshop, we’ll reflect on and celebrate the launch of GIVE: Growing Inclusivity for Vibrant Engagement—and we’ll look ahead to the ways each of us will carry the knowledge, strategies, and tools out into the world.
We’ll kick off the celebration by hearing from arts education leaders about how GIVE will help foster the liberated learning environments now and in the future. Then in collaboration with other Teaching Artists, we’ll each have the chance to try some of the ideas and practices in The GIVE Lab—a place to play, to experiment, to imagine. We’ll close with reflection and celebration strategies contributed to GIVE by Teaching Artists as we lift up those who helped create these resources and celebrate our journey toward more inclusive, vibrant arts education.
