ARTISTS IN COMMUNITIES TRAINING (ACT) INTENSIVE: March 22 – April 6, 2003
What is ACT?
Our Artists in Communities Training (ACT) Program aims to expand the pool of artists of color in all disciplines to actively convey the power of artmaking into the hands of everyday people. ACT provides artists with a two-week series of intensive workshops on educational models and strategies, a hands-on teaching placement, and opportunities for future residencies in schools and community settings. ACT is grounded in an innovative Arts Based Pedagogy that includes the Arts as an intergral part of the intellectual, artistic, cultural, and political development of youth and community members.
Here’s what you get from ACT:
* Pick up tools from other artists through observations and workshops.
* Develop your own one-day lesson plan.
* Implement it with an actual school or community group.
* Become part of the Asian Arts Initiative’s roster of teaching artists.
* Receive a stipend for successfully completing the program.
