ArtsEd Tennessee and Americans for the Arts will host a day-long workshop from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Oct. 25, in the University of Tennessee at Martin’s Boling University Center. This event is free and open to the public, although pre-registration is required to reserve a seat. Breakfast, lunch and materials will be provided for all attendees. Please visit utm.edu/ artsworkshop to register by Oct. 17.
This event is designed to gather input from arts educators and community stakeholders from across the state and develop an advocacy plan to ensure equal access to music and arts education for every Tennessee student.
The workshop, supported by the Country Music Association Foundation, will help develop a statewide network to improve arts advocacy and create policy changes at the state level. ArtsEd Tennessee is a new statewide arts advocacy coalition that represents and supports all areas of K-12 public education. Americans for the Arts is the largest national arts advocacy network in the country.
