The Catalyst Series: Art and Democracy in Education
Saturday, November 8th
The Catalyst Series, organized and hosted by Los Feliz Charter School for the Arts, seeks to bring together individuals who wish to take part in shaping the educational landscape with respect to arts integration, civic engagement, and democratic pedagogy. We begin this series by examining the intersections between art, democracy and education. This convening’s program and formats aim to reflect democratic values of equity, diversity and advocacy.
In this convening participants will explore, share, and develop knowledge about the impact of recurring experiences in arts education in the development of self-aware active citizens in a democratic society. We seek to engage individuals and groups who are interested in developing a greater sense of agency in their desire to amplify the voice of the arts in education. In this day-long program participants will be able to experience a variety of formats; workshops, round table dialogues, work groups, Spark Talks, exhibitions and performances. This convening is presented in a non-traditional structure, where there is no pre-established hierarchy or pre-determined outcomes. It brings together students, artists, K-12 and university educators, scholars, activists, school administrators, and policy makers, among others. The program is shaped by its participants.
