Arts Education—Beyond the Warm and Fuzzy
Wednesday, October 24, 2012, 4:00-5:30 PM
Aronoff Center’s Center Stage Room
Join the Cincy Emerging Arts Leaders in a Creative Conversation discussing the issue of Arts Education – Beyond the Warm and Fuzzy. This panel discussion brings together a variety of local arts supporters to dig deep into the question “Why is arts education essential to you, your organization, your business, and your community?” as well as further discussion into how professionals in Cincinnati can make a difference in arts education in our communities. Questions from participants will also be addressed by the panel.
The 2012 Creative Conversation panel includes:
Joe Link: Executive Director, Marjorie Book Continuing Education, and Adjunct Faculty, Xavier University – Moderator
Mark Davis: District Manager, Barnes & Noble Booksellers
Dr. Nancy Elder: Associate Professor, Director of Research, Department of Family and Community Medicine, University of Cincinnati
Katie Hofmann: Race to the Top Lead Teacher and TIF Coordinator, Cincinnati Public Schools
Jim Huizenga: Senior Program Officer, The Greater Cincinnati Foundation
Every October, in honor of National Arts & Humanities Month, Americans for the Arts partners with arts and community leaders from across the country to host Creative Conversations. Last year, more than 1,800 individuals participated in 52 locally hosted Creative Conversations throughout the country. Those leaders continue to be engaged at the national level.
The event is free and open to the public. However, preregistration is strongly encouraged. Register through Americans for the Arts.
