Art Education Journal ConnectionsArts Equity: Practicing Creative Activity as a Human RightWednesday, April 25 | 7-8 pm ET
Arts equity can take many forms. Join us as Art Education Senior Editor Amelia Kraehe dives into a conversation with Journal authors for a closer look at arts equity and inclusion. Authors will share stories about curriculum projects, practices, and outcomes that illustrate contemporary approaches to creative activity as a human right. These tales from the field connect everyday concerns ranging from teaching for equity in the art classroom to global human struggles for freedom. What will their stories inspire for you and your classroom?
John Ploof and Lisa Hochtritt (Art Education, January 2018) tell the story of a justice-oriented teacher think tank that collaborates on professional development and curriculum planning. Join with Steve Ciampaglia (Art Education, July 2017) to discover the Plug-In Studio, a new media arts collective that works alongside African-American youth in the development of culturally relevant and socially responsive art video games. And, Cindy Maguire (Art Education, July 2017) will share her experience partnering with a refugee camp in Algeria to put on an international human rights festival with socially engaged artworks.
