Joy | Remembering Who We Are, the 2022 Ingenuity and Chicago Public Schools Department of Arts Education conference, gives participants space to deepen their understanding of culturally responsive education. You’ll engage in thought-provoking conversations, community practice, and relevant strategic tool sharing to reimagine your pedagogy and curriculum.
The conference will empower you to more deeply actualize spaces where students become leaders of their learning and uniquely positioned to create art that expresses a complete story of who they are: one that remembers their joy.
As a result of attending this conference, you will…
- Explore your unique intersections of identity and discover or reconnect with the aspects of joy within your own identity
- Explore best practices on what it means to be culturally responsive, and to center student identity in the relationship between teachers, students, content, and community
- Identify strategies to ensure that students’ identities and cultures are constantly engaged in their arts learning environment and experience
- Leave with tools or pathways to engaging students with similar work in their classrooms
