The BC Alliance Presents: “Embracing the Social Power of the Arts: How to Create Values-Based Arts Education Programs”

Changes to the BC curriculum present arts organizations with many opportunities to create meaningful, values-based education programs. On October 18, the BC Alliance for Arts + Culture presents Embracing the Social Power of the Arts: How to Create Values-Based Arts Education Programs. 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.

“Embracing the Social Power of the Arts” is facilitated by Colleen Maybin. Colleen 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.

If you can’t make it to the event, you can also register to view the workshop via our livestreaming service. Register to attend the session in-person or via livestream at our Workshops page.
