Teaching Artist Development Track with Eric Booth

« Back

Sep 10, 2013
New York, New York

The success of community arts education organizations---of our field---depends upon maintaining positive long-term relationships with teaching artists, preparing them well, nurturing their development, and helping them build sustainable careers.  To that end, we are pleased to announce the "Teaching Artist Development Track" at the 2013 Conference for Community Arts Education (October 30 - November 2, Chicago).
Join leaders of nonprofit arts education organizations from across the country as we discuss how our institutions and the field as a whole can increase access to quality arts education by supporting the development of professional teaching artists working in studio, public school, healthcare, senior services, and other settings.
During the course of the track, we'll roll up our sleeves and craft a chart of effective practices that organizations can adopt individually and collectively to advance teaching artistry as a profession.

The track includes the following sessions, facilitated by Eric Booth

Unleashing Teaching Artists' Potential

Friday, Nov. 1, 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Charting Teaching Artist Development & Pathways
Saturday, Nov. 2, 9:00am - 12:00pm

A New Map for Developing the Teaching Artist Profession
Saturday, Nov. 2, 2:30pm - 4:00pm

All sessions in this track are included in the regular registration fees for the conference. Register by Sept. 19 for the best rates!
