Embracing the Social Power of the Arts: How to Create Values-Based Arts Education Programs

from 25.00

October 18: 9:30 a.m. - 12:00 pm

Changes in the BC curriculum present arts organizations with many opportunities to create meaningful, values-based education programs that align with the new core competencies at the foundation of the curriculum. This workshop will examine what is possible when the mission of an arts organization becomes the foundation for both school and community programming. Current ideologies in arts education will be addressed and examples of values-based programs will be presented as case studies for what is possible.

Colleen Maybin is the director of education and community engagement at Vancouver Opera. A passionate advocate for arts education, Colleen has more than 20 years experience as an arts educator. Prior positions include teaching with the Vancouver and Delta School Boards, faculty advisor in teacher education at the University of British Columbia, arts manager at Regent’s College in London, England and district manager, Surrey with Arts Umbrella. She is currently a PhD candidate in arts education at Simon Fraser University.
