On September 28, 2019, the Roundtable will host A Day of Learning on the Art of Environmental Justice at the New York Botanical Garden. This Day of Learning is dedicated to exploring ways in which the arts in education community is employing artistic practice as a means to inspire community, education, and active awareness of climate change and environmental justice issues. The event will culminate in a presentation of NYBG’s Climate Change Arts Exchange, a multidisciplinary performance of NYC-based performing arts groups presenting new works related to climate change. Each registration will include catered breakfast and lunch; professional development workshops; a plenary session; free admission into the NY Botanical Garden and Current Exhibitions; a reserved spot at NYBG’s Climate Change Arts Exchange; a 20% discount off admission to the Garden will be extended to accompanying guests of Day of Learning attendees.
Our annual Days of Learning are 1-day intensive learning opportunities that provide specific strategies to advance equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) within the classroom, in cultural institutions, and beyond. The day’s content is designed to address the specific needs of arts education practitioners and focuses on social justice issues relevant to NYC's unique arts ecosystem. This event is open to members and non-members.
Established in 1992, the the NYC Arts in Education Roundtable is a not-for-profit service organization providing professional development, strategic field leadership, support, community, and amplified advocacy for arts education. Our primary function is to ensure the sustainability of the arts education community and promote a culture of continuous improvement from lessons learned in classrooms and through research. The Roundtable builds its efforts around the value that arts education should be a right for all NYC students.
This event is part of the Health, Equality and Justice program of Climate Week NYC.
