NYU's Program in Educational Theatre to Spotlight Teaching Artists, 4/25-27
For this year's arts education forum, The Program in Educational Theatre at New York University is spotlighting the Teaching Artist. Allied professionals from multiple disciplines, newcomers to the field, administrators, and researchers are invited to exchange perspectives and collectively envision our shared future alongside leading arts organizations such as New Victory Theater and Lincoln Center Education.
This three-day event will highlight the work of teaching artists both locally and internationally through a variety of experiences: dynamic workshops and dialogues with artists representing The Moth, Roundabout Theatre, AIE Roundtable, Urban Arts Partnership, and more; panel discussions around navigation, innovation, and sustainability from cross-disciplinary arts leaders; performances both on campus and at premiere NYC arts venues; and networking opportunities.
Opening night of the forum will include the first ever Exemplary Teaching Artist Awards, celebrating four outstanding leaders in the field of teaching artistry. Nominated by their peers, these individuals are innovators in teaching practice, seasoned guides to teaching artists navigating the field, and experts in sustaining a teaching artist practice. This unique honor will be presented by Dr. Maxine Greene, world-renowned teaching artist pioneer and scholar.
The forum will also feature events such as a teaching artist job fair hosted by Community Word Project, a performance of Julius Caesar by Educational Theatre's traveling Shakespeare troupe, and an excursion to the New Victory Theater for a performance of Fluff: A Story of Lost Toys, complete with pre-show workshop from current New Victory teaching artists.
