Speaker Series: Creativity & Post-Pandemic Recovery

March 27th, 2023 | 7:00-9:00pm | 320 Washington Street Suite 215 Boston, MA 02135

ARCK's Speaker Series is meant to engage the community in conversations on creativity and education. Our first event will be Co-Hosted by Sara Mraish-Demeter, ARCK's Founder & CEO, and Diana Stelin, artist, educator, and keynote speaker. Our esteemed moderator for the event will be Claudia Fiks of Artscope Magazine.

Supplementing ARCK's work in the classroom and in training and coaching area educators, Speaker Series will be a series of smaller events meant to engage the community in conversations on creativity and education. These events will bring engaging BIPOC and LGBTQAI+ leaders in wellness, innovation, arts, music, and theater education, policymakers, and urban planning experts together to discuss the role of the arts in post-pandemic recovery. We hope to create a community of creative leaders who will expand the arts reach to work toward unity and societal change.

The first event is a wonderful panel on the topic of arts as a modality for post-pandemic recovery. It will be hosted in the stunning Brighton center studio of Diana Stelin whose work focuses on fighting burnout through creativity in the corporate sector.

In addition to Diana and Sara, this discussion will feature a number of incredible panelists:

1. Rhoda Bernard, Managing Director for Accessible Arts Education at Berklee School of Music

2. Jenn Guillemin, Co-Founder of Creative Re/Frame and Faculty at Northeastern University

3. Jennifer Okumura, an artist in residence at Philadelphia Arts in the Court project

About ARCK

Our Mission: ARCK partners with schools and educators to provide an equitable student-led, interdisciplinary arts education that gives young people the tools to become innovative change makers in school and beyond.

ARCK is a 501(c)(3) K-12 education nonprofit that provides under-resourced Boston Public School students with creative programs that deepen academic learning and emotional well-being through an interdisciplinary arts education model. ARCK’s unique student-led Creativity Catalyst framework builds students’ creativity and critical thinking skills while also developing social-emotional skills. Our work is critical as students seek to repair social connections and pandemic-related learning loss. Since 2012, ARCK has engaged over 5,000 students across 10 schools, and we are currently expanding our educator training program and moving into high schools. We are reimagining education to be rooted in equity, compassion, creativity, social-emotional skills, and responsibility so that our students can become innovative change makers and thrive in the classroom and beyond.
