Conclusion Friday 11/5

This track is open to all who register for the gathering, and focuses on healing for self, for the collective, and for movement building through grounding practices that—over time—return, remember, realign, and recenter health and wholeness within community arts education. 

Creative Aging Track 

Three Tuesdays (10/19, 10,26, 11/2)

This track focuses on promoting art making, social connection, and joy for older adults in our communities through grounding practices that dismantle ageism and ableism in our programs, organizations, and collective efforts.

Human-Centered Practices Track

Three Wednesdays: 10/20, 10/27, 11/3

This track focuses on centering people and community well-being in our leadership and management practices within community arts education, including transparent communication and decision-making when it comes to policy, finances, and strategy. Learn more about a human-centered framework.

Creative Youth Development Track

Three Thursdays: 10/21, 10/28, 11/4

This track focuses on authentically amplifying youth voice and leadership in community arts education through grounding practices that dismantle adultism in our programs, organizations, and collective efforts. Adultism is the systematic mistreatment and disrespect of young people which in turn disregards their power and rights as full human-beings. Learn more about creative youth development (CYD).
