Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education, Mass Cultural Council, Arts|Learning, and Lesley University are hosting the Leadership in Arts Integration Institute on March 13-14, 2020, in Cambridge, MA. The Institute will bring leaders in arts integration from around Massachusetts to present models for designing and implementing arts integration programs in PreK-12 schools. Keynote presenters at the Institute will include state and national leaders in the arts and education, including Jamie Kasper, the newly appointed Director of the Arts Education Partnership of the Education Commission of the States.
In order to provide a variety of models of leadership in arts integration, we are seeking proposals from arts specialists, classroom teachers, school leaders, artists, and other professionals who have engaged in designing arts integration programs in schools.
Inside an unassuming Victorian-era building, just west of downtown Holyoke, is one of the nation’s most distinctive creative community development initiatives: The Care Center. It is an example of what can happen when culture and creativity form the foundation to dismantle systemic barriers for individuals, as well as communities.
From Artist News to Creative Youth, Community Initiative, and Power of Culture, our email lists are a great way to keep up with the work of Mass Cultural Council and its partners across the Commonwealth.
