You are invited to apply to take part in a series of professional development sessions for artist-educators in the Hamilton area, hosted by the Workers Arts & Heritage Centre, and supported by the Ontario Arts Council.
In response to our first professional development session for artist-educators in July 2015, we are offering a multi-session summer school for artist-educators. These sessions will consist of seminar sessions in the areas of museum education, labour art and labour history, anti-oppression pedagogical frameworks, learning models for different abilities and more. These sessions will equip arts educators to teach issue-based workshops for kids, youth and adults at the Workers Arts & Heritage Centre, Canada’s only labour history museum and multidisciplinary art centre, and will enrich their skills and practice as arts educators in other venues.
This summer school will be divided between compulsory and elective sessions. It is mandatory that those interested attend all four compulsory sessions.
Space in this program is limited, and an honourarium will be provided to all who take part. To be considered for this program, fill out this Surveymonkey form as an expression of interest. Because space is limited, a selection process will be employed to determine who will take part in these sessions. Selections will be made prioritizing equity-seeking groups, and a balance of educators in a range of arts disciplines.
The deadline for expressions of interest in this program is April 8, 2016.
For more information or if you have further questions, please feel free to contact Tara Bursey, Program Coordinator, Workers Arts & Heritage Centre at (905) 522-3003 ex. 29 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
