All Together Now: Building Strong Communities through Arts and Education Partnerships (New Orleans, Louisiana, February 12-13, 2009). Reflections on the Forum
Arts Education Partnership (NJ1)
When the members of Arts Education Partnership (AEP) first started thinking of how they might disseminate information about the AEP Winter Forum in New Orleans, they knew they wanted to shake up the format of a traditional Forum report. At this stage in the evolution of the Partnership, and of the arts education field as a whole, they felt they would learn more about what really happened at the Forum, and what could be shared, by hearing from multiple voices from the field rather than their own interpretation of events. And since the theme of this Forum was All Together Now: Building Strong Communities Through Arts and Education Partnerships, it seemed especially inappropriate that the story of the event unfold through multiple perspectives and voices. This paper presents the reflections of the participants who participated at AEP forum held last February 12-13, 2009 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The reflections presented in this report include: (1) Shining the Light on What Works (Doug Herbert); (2) New Voices for New Times (Arnold Aprill and Amy Rasmussen); (3) What Happened, What's Next (John Abodeely); (4) Revisiting the ImagiNation (Kathleen Cerveny); (5) Understanding the Issues and Building the Field (Colin Ilgen and Amira Wizig); (6) Bringing Change Closer to Home (Richard Baker and Bethany France); (7) Reflecting on New Orleans (Eric Booth); and (8) Inspired to Action (Tom DeCaigny and Jessica Mele).
