A SEMINAR ON THE ROLE OF THE ARTS IN MEETING THE SOCIAL AND EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF THE DISADVANTAGED.
ROSE, HANNA T.
A 4-DAY SEMINAR WAS ORGANIZED AROUND SEVEN PAPERS WHICH PROVIDED A BASIS FOR DISCUSSION FROM MANY POINTS OF VIEW. THE PARTICIPANTS WERE THOSE INVOLVED IN WORK IN THE ARTS WITH THE DISADVANTAGED IN VARIOUS AREAS, AS WELL AS A PSYCHOLOGIST, A SOCIOLOGIST, AN ANTHROPOLOGIST, A RESEARCH SPECIALIST IN ART EDUCATION, AND REPRESENTATIVES OF STATE AND CITY EDUCATION DEPARTMENTS. THE DISCUSSIONS CENTERED AROUND THE THEORETICAL EVIDENCE AND THE DEMONSTRATION PROGRAMS WHICH WERE PRESENTED BY THE PEOPLE INVOLVED IN THEM. THE PROGRAMS COVERED A WIDE RANGE, FROM THEATER PRESENTATIONS AND CONCERTS WHICH TRAVEL INTO A NEIGHBORHOOD AND PROGRAMS IN INFORMAL CENTERS TO THOSE IN SPECIAL SCHOOLS. EXAMPLES WERE CITED TO DEMONSTRATE THAT THE ARTS CAN PROVIDE THE FIRST EXPERIENCE OF POSITIVE ACCOMPLISHMENT AMONG THE DISADVANTAGED, AND FROM THIS CAN DEVELOP A SENSE OF PERSONAL PRIDE LEADING TO OTHER ACCOMPLISHMENTS. EMPHASIS WAS ON THE FUNCTIONAL USE OF THE ARTS TO ENABLE THE CREATIVITY IN EACH PERSON TO REACH ITS FULLEST POTENTIAL. ON THE CONCLUDING DAY, A PANEL DISCUSSED THE FEDERAL RESOURCES FOR SUPPORT OF THE ARTS. (TC)
