Event description

Description

If you believe the arts matter; that everyone deserves meaningful access to the arts; and that the arts belong to all of us — then you belong at this summer's inaugural ARTISTIC LITERACY INSTITUTE.

Hosted by Cal Performances at UC Berkeley | June 13-15 | Registration and Welcome on June 12

ARTISTIC LITERACY is a human right and a teachable skill. It is the ability to make meaning of works of art and, through this process, to forge connections to our humanity and the humanity of others. When we practice artistic literacy—by exploring an artist’s process, understanding artistic concepts, and learning skills within an artistic discipline—we inspire contemplation on the human experience, challenge our beliefs and perceptions, and cultivate our ability to revise what we think we know. We gain entrance to works of art that may have seemed inaccessible; we experience a sense of ownership and belonging.

Artistic Literacy as a framework and a methodology builds upon decades of best practices in arts education as exemplified by Lincoln Center Education, the Kennedy Center, and other leaders in arts-based learning and teaching. Five years ago, we established the Department of Artistic Literacy at Cal Performances in order to refine and share our approach. If you have any training in these methodologies, the Artistic Literacy framework invites you to leverage your expertise in new ways. If you are new to arts-based teaching and learning, you'll leave our institute with a fresh vocabulary and set of tools to engage audiences of any age and any level of previous experience to connect with works of art.

------------

Thanks to our generous donors, we can offer you a full scholarship ($500 tuition waiver), so join us in June to share with and learn from those who believe as you do: that great works of art connect us to our own humanity and the humanity of others.
