Arts Education Partnerships Seeks Session Proposals
The Arts Education Partnership seeks concurrent session proposals for its 2016 National Forum, to be held October 5-7 in Denver, Colorado. Proposals are due by Friday, June 17, at 5:00 p.m. PDT.
The Arts Education Partnership is a center within the Education Commission of the States, a national state policy organization that partners with education policy leaders, including AACTE. For the 2016 National Forum, partners and leaders from around the nation are invited to share their exemplary work supporting the role and contribution of the arts to prepare all students for the “next America.”
The event will focus on the role and contribution of the arts in addressing the priority areas outlined in The Arts Leading the Way to Student Success: A 2020 Action Agenda for Advancing the Arts in Education. Proposals given the strongest consideration will address one or more of these priority areas:
- Raise student achievement and success
- Support effective educators and school leaders
- Transform the teaching and learning environment
- Build leadership capacity and knowledge
