CAEF hosts annual networking events focused on information-sharing, arts appreciation, and connection. Social events are designed to stimulate conversation and introduce members of the field to one another in a casual setting over appetizers and beverages.
This year, CAEF will be joining forces with Chicago Shakespeare Theater (CST) at their Educator Forum: Reimagining School: The Essential Role of the Arts, presented by Golden Apple Foundation, Chicago Shakespeare Theater and National Lewis University.
Featured panelists include Pittsburgh community leader Bill Strickland, author of Make the Impossible Possible, and Chicago Public Schools Director of Arts Education Evan Plummer. In this symposium our panelists will discuss, from their unique vantage points, the impact on students of being exposed to and engaging in the arts and why the arts are an essential element of a solid education. Specifically, the conversation will focus on how to implement the arts successfully in the classroom in a rich and sustaining way.
Don’t miss what is sure to be a wonderful evening.
CAEF Reception: 5:00 PM – 6:15 PM
Reimaging School Forum: 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM
