USSEA Regional Conference An Inclusive World: Bridging Communities July 17-July 19 2015
Join us for a three day conference of local, national, international museum educators, arts teachers, professors, gallerists, and artists. Over 65 sessions include best practices, panels, and hands on workshops. Registration includes two days of breakfast and lunch at the new museum café, an opening reception, weekend pass to the Hall of Science, access to ongoing exhibits of Tiffany glass and the NYC panorama, plus designated time shuttles from the Willets Point station to the Museum before the conference begins.
The conference examines arts and culture in classrooms, museums and community arts organizations. The goals of the conference are to find ways that participants in these different contexts might share resources, knowledge, and expertise to enrich their respective disciplines. The conference topics are as follows: Inclusion in Learning Communities, Effective Tools for Diverse Community Engagement in the Museum, Debating the Stigma of “Outsider Art,” Art and Social Practice, and High and Low Tech Tools for 21st century Art Education. The four keynote speakers were invited based on these points. They are each renowned representatives in their fields.
