SXSWedu New York PanelPicker Meet Up and Panel Discussion
with Urban Arts Partnership and Civic Hall
Join Urban Arts Partnership and SXSWedu at Civic Hall for a deep dive into one of the most popular featured sessions from 2016’s SXSWedu festival: Can Hip Hop Save Our Schools? We’re bringing together educators, learners, artists and entrepreneurs to explore New York City’s vibrant youth culture and ask how technology can be used to create culturally relevant learning experiences for the city’s youth.
Designed to bring the highlights from SXSWedu to NYC, this event features Urban Arts Partnership’s Fresh Education program, which blends hip-hop music with digital learning tools to transform teaching and learning in NYC’s most under-resourced schools.
Bring your friends and colleagues, get answers to your SXSWedu and PanelPicker questions, and network with other professionals interested in exploring new possibilities in education.
Enjoy drinks and light refreshments, and enter to win a badge for SXSWedu 2017!
