Creative Ingenuity Symposium: Advancing Education Through the Arts

The Creative Ingenuity Symposium is a 3-day convening at the intersection of arts, education, culture and social impact. This symposium seeks to present new ideas, cultivate perspective shifts and widen the lens of inquiry around the arts within education.

The symposium will provide professional development, participatory workshops, sessions and a tour to educators and teaching artists from all arts backgrounds and within all district schools. The symposium will consist of a main session (at the start of the day) and a series of breakout sessions focused on: arts integration, joy in the arts, arts for social change and culturally-responsive teaching and learning. Generously sponsored by Cornelia T. Bailey Foundation, the symposium is free to all registrants.
