All executive directors, program staff, development staff and teaching artists with less than two years of experience working with CPS, and individuals who are new to arts education are invited to come to Ingenuity’s Partner Starter Institute. This how-to is for arts education organizations and for teaching artists who are new to working with Chicago Public Schools and will show how arts partners can build a collaborative relationship with schools. At this institute, Ingenuity will provide training on the fundamentals of working with CPS at both the district and school levels through the lens of the CPS Arts Education Plan and the Creative Schools Initiative, tools for a supportive partnership and fluency of CPS goals and priorities, and insights from veteran community arts partners and CPS leaders. Lunch will be provided. RSVP for this institute today!
