Artists who are interested in teaching (or those already working in schools) will enjoy increased access to educational opportunities, resources, and a community of colleagues thanks to a strategic partnership of Vermont arts organizations. Catamount Arts, Community Engagement Lab, River Arts, Vermont Arts Council, VSA Vermont, and WonderArts VT are collaborating to provide networking and enrichment events for Vermont’s teaching artists, beginning with a mixer on Sunday, November 5th, in Greensboro.
Artists in all media are invited to the mixer, scheduled for 4:00-5:30 on November 5th at the Highland Center for the Arts on 2875 Hardwick Street in Greensboro. Attendees will enjoy light refreshments, conversation, and presentations on professional development resources and job opportunities. A long-term goal of the gathering is to create a community of teaching artists in the region for ongoing sharing of resources and best practices.
The November 5th teaching artist networking mixer is made possible by the Vermont Arts Council. Hosts for the event are Catamount Arts, Community Engagement Lab, River Arts, VSA Vermont, and WonderArts VT. More information is available by emailing email@example.com or by calling 802-533-9370.
