Meeting Topics? How to collectively transform public education through the arts to create a better future together.
Where are we now? Share key takeaways Concern regarding the barriers that keep us from working together:
worrying about what’s in it for each stakeholder
language that confuses and isolates us from others
everyone needs to see themselves as an artist
dissonance between art for art’s sake and art to serve another purpose
Where should we go, and why? Share key takeaways We need to demystify the discussion about the arts
We need to connect the terms of the new economy to the arts in a more concrete way.
We need to articulate the place of the arts in the greater world
How Should we get there? Share key takeaways Make it personal for everyone–how have the arts impacted them?
