Speaking Up: Empowering Change in the Next Generation Through Arts Education
feat. Jeff Poulin (Arts Education Manager, Americans for the Arts)
Thursday, February 23, 12-1:20 pm
Hamburg Hall 1204
As emerging arts and cultural leaders, we all know the path which brought us to today. However, what would have happened with our life if we never had the transformative experience of arts education? Join Jeff M. Poulin for an inspiring discussion about a future rich in arts and cultural education for America’s students. Exploring pathways in pedagogy, policy, and politics, Jeff will apply his national perspective in arts and cultural policy in Washington, D.C. to the most local of challenges in equity, quality, and issues of social justice.
