Event Details

Arts Education Convening hosted by DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative

Identifying Promising Approaches for Providing Arts Education Via Community Partnerships

The DC Collaborative invites our members and other community arts educators to participate in an arts education convening on Wednesday, January 26th from 1-5 p.m.. Together we will take steps to Identify Promising Approaches for Providing Arts Education Via Community Partnerships.

During this half-day meeting, participants will explore how arts education providers can work together to serve Washington, DC, children, youth and families more comprehensively. This convening builds on the take-aways -- and responds to the needs identified -- at Arts Education for a Better DC, a November Arts Education conference sponsored by the Sitar Arts Center.

Providing access to a comprehensive arts education for every child in Washington, DC, involves: 

  • Identifying current opportunities for --and barriers to --this goal; and
  • Mapping existing arts education programs across the city to identify gaps.

An Agenda for the conference follows:

Plenary 1:00 to 1:40 p.m.

Successful Approaches to Arts Education Partnerships from Other Major Cities

Speaker: Catherine Augustine of RAND Corporation, co-author, Revitalizing Arts Education Through Community-wide Coordination, The Wallace Foundation

Small Break-out Sessions 1:45 to 2:30

What are the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats we encounter in providing arts education to all students? Laying the foundation for advancing a comprehensive, high-quality arts education plan begins with a shared understanding of the opportunities and challenges we face doing this work in Washington, DC, 2011. Participants will work together to establish a shared understanding of the contextual factors that facilitate or hinder our progress. 

Larger group report out: 2:35 to 2:55

Plenary 3:00 to 3:30 p.m.

Speaker: Jennifer Sloane McCombs, author, Hours of Opportunity: How Cities Can Use Data to Increase Access and Participation in High-Quality Programming

Small Break-out Sessions: 3:35 to 4:20

Collecting Data for the DC Arts Education Community

In order to ensure a comprehensive strategic plan will be grounded in reality, we must inventory the current edcuation partnerships in DC schools. Effective data collection is a critical step and provides a valuable baseline for measuring progress in future years. These break-out groups will identify useful data categories and will consider strategies for data collection.

Report Out and Next Steps: 4:30 to 5:00 p.m.

We look forward to seeing you there!
