GET ON THE MAP!
You are invited to a presentation and discussion regarding The Canadian Network for Arts & Learning's ‘Mapping Project’ – an innovative digital map representing arts and learning across Ontario. We want YOU to be part of this conversation. In addition, enjoy presentations about some of the dynamic advances in Kingston's arts and learning community, as well as the story of how one artist-educator facilitates inter-cultural connections and creative explorations with Toronto's inner-city youth. Come – be inspired, reconnect with peers, meet new people, explore potential partnerships and creative collaborations.
We're thrilled to partner with the Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning for this year's Eduarts Hub in Kingston. Reconnect with peers, meet new people and explore potential partnerships and collaborations in a time of networking, followed by a presentation and discussion of CNAL's mapping project. Help guide the evolution of this exciting three-year project to map arts and learning across Ontario.
The Hub will start off with a multimedia presentation by Sheena Robertson, Artistic Director of KickStart Arts from Toronto. Sheena works in schools and community settings to nurture intercultural dialogue and create opportunities for diverse people and perspectives to intersect - creating meaningful connections and shared creative experiences.
Fresh off of a month-long exhibit at Queen's University, Creative Expressions of Teaching and Learning highlights the creative element of teaching and learning in higher education. Exhibit Co-chairs Peter Wolf and Sandra Murray will lead attendees through artifacts that aim to display and celebrate the creativity of teaching that contribute greatly to student learning.
Katherine Porter (Executive Director) and Kathryn MacKay (Artist In Residence) will be speaking on the topic of "mixing abilities". At H'art Centre, artist educators, professional artists, and adults with intellectual disabilities all have the opportunity to contribute to major productions, to mentor each other, and to share their personal talents, stories and expertise with each other. We also invite the next generation of arts educators to complete their field placements here–– to get involved in the mix!
Come take part in an interactive session, network with new and familiar peers, and help steer development of our collective map. Refreshments provided.
The mapping project and the Ontario Eduarts Hub series are supported by a grow grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
