Changing the Subject: The Arts for Social Impact

Let’s move beyond a definition of Culturally Responsive Pedagogy (CRP) as an engagement strategy designed to motivate black and Latino students. With the goal of moving towards a deeper understanding of how to put youth at the center, this workshop will lead participants in exploring their own definitions and biases around CRP. Hear education leaders discuss how they have positioned their organizations to respond to issues of increasing inequity, and describe the critical role that bringing the arts to underserved communities has played in fostering student voice. Develop partnerships and plans to create learning environments that support all learners through the arts.
