New and returning Arts Liaisons are invited to kick off the 2019–20 school year at this event co-hosted by Ingenuity and the CPS Department of Arts Education, which combines an informational and networking session with an opportunity to explore potential arts partnerships (along with a chance to win some well-deserved cash)!
At the Rally (4:30 p.m.–6:00 p.m.), Liaisons will (re)connect with peers, develop and strengthen their understanding of their unique role in (and impact on) Chicago’s arts ecosystem, and get fired up for the school year ahead. They’ll receive comprehensive resources to help them better fulfill the Liaison role … along with some “thank you” goodies for all the hard work they do to champion the arts!
At the Mega-Summit (6:00 p.m.–8:30 p.m.), Liaisons (along with other teachers and school administrators) will connect with community arts partners to identify and fill the most pressing arts needs in their schools. All schools in attendance will be entered into a drawing for cash prizes to be used for the development of arts partnerships in their schools. Dinner and drinks will be served.
