Image for CTC Offering Arts in Education Conference

Mar 21, 2016

Continuing the Conversation (CTC), an initiative with roots in the Arts in Education Program at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, is bringing together professionals and supporters of arts in education for Circle Up!, a conference being held May 6–8 in Cambridge, MA. Participants will have an opportunity to “recharge, dig deep, reflect, and forge ahead with new ideas for our common work."

Throughout the conference, participants will be invited to join “conversation threads,” which will lead to the generation of questions, art-making, and collective learning. The conversation threads include:

  • Creating Equity – How are artists and arts educators uniquely equipped to enrich, deepen, and catalyze moments of social awareness around critical questions about race and social justice?
  • Sharing Stories – How do we want our arts education work documented and reported? Who should be telling the real stories of the meaning of this work? And how might those stories be shared?
  • Deepening Practice – How do we define, describe, and achieve high quality teaching and learning? And how is our understanding of what that means changing?
  • Engaging All Learners – What role can the arts play in creating more inclusive learning environments?
  • Strengthening Communities – How can we reconsider partnershipswho we partner with and how we work togetherto significantly change both who we reach and the quality of the arts learning experiences we offer? And how can those partnerships serve to strengthen communities?
