Artful Practices in Story Telling

Assistant Professor Kathryn Ricketts (Arts Education – Dance Education) will lead a series of dynamic and condensed workshops with a selection of artists/teachers who have extensive backgrounds in the K - 12 context. Together we will explore new methods in Dance, Theatre and Visual Arts with a focus on personal stories as the foundation. These workshop will end with collective 'incubation/application' whereby the participants can synthesize these experiences towards their own teaching contexts, personal styles and interests.

 

Advocacy for Arts and Learning

Contribute to a national and global initiative to increase access to arts and learning by “re-energizing the Seoul Agenda: Goals for the development of arts education.”  We need to hear your voice!

Unanimously endorsed by the Member States of UNESCO in 2011, the Seoul Agenda calls on governments and communities worldwide to take action to increase access to arts education, to improve the quality of arts education and to apply arts education to solving the world’s social and cultural problems. Six years later, the goals of the Agenda remain unrealized in many cases and unevenly implemented in others. In response to this urgent situation, a partnership has been established including the Canadian Network for Arts and Learning, the Canadian Commission for UNESCO and the UNESCO Chair in Arts and Learning.  As a first step in the process of reengaging the world in arts and learning, the partnership has commissioned the preparation of a position paper.

This document will make a case for the importance of arts education, discuss the gap between the aspirations of the Agenda and their current implementation, and propose strategies for partners and other parties tasked with achieving its goals. Our aim is to help others think through their own circumstances and initiate change with the ultimate goal of improving the situation of arts education across Canada and worldwide.

Please join us to add your voice to the preparation of this important call to action.
