Arts Education Exchange

September 20, 2017

Friday, October 6

Does your organization provide some type of visual or performing arts education programming?

If so, YOU’RE INVITED to join the Arts Education Exchange on Friday, October 6, 1:00 – 4:30 at the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland.

The Maine Arts Commission has planned an opportunity for community arts centers/organizations, visual and/or performing arts focused schools, museums, and galleries who offer education programs to meet for an afternoon of idea exchange.

PURPOSE

The purpose will be to meet and learn from each other by sharing information and resources, exchanging ideas about education programs, and collaborative thinking. This will be a great networking opportunity.

This first Arts Education Exchange will take place at the Farnsworth Art Museum on Friday, October 6, 2017, 1:00 – 4:30 and hopefully, in the future the gathering will take place at other locations in the state.

If you are interested in attending please complete the ARTS EDUCATION EXCHANGE REGISTRATION. If you can not attend on October 6 but are interested in future exchanges please complete the survey at the registration link and indicate your interest. If you have questions please contact Argy Nestor, Maine Arts Commission Director of Arts Education at argy.nestor@maine.gov.
