2018 SHINE Mural Festival - Artist: Gibbs Rounsavall


Arts Education Roundtable
Hosted by Harlem Stage & TYA/USA
Monday, August 17 at 4 pm

What does back-to-school look like this year, especially for BIPOC communities?

This forum, co-hosted by Harlem Stage and TYA/USA, examines the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on students, with specific focus on students of color.

What challenges are students and educators facing due to distance learning, gaps in access to technology, protests responding to the killing of unarmed citizens, a health pandemic and being quarantined?

Will arts education remain relevant and prioritized as an essential tool for students to self-express and navigate the complexity of being young in America in 2020? How can arts education cultivate joy and engage young people through crisis?

These conversations will excavate the unique challenges, strategies and opportunities that this crisis has presented, while interrogating systemic racism in public education.

This education forum will bring together educators, teaching artists, social workers, students and artists to seek answers to these questions: How has distance learning affected students’ productivity? How can arts education be re-imagined for digital platforms? How have Black and Brown students and communities, specifically, been impacted? What policies, practices and resources must be shifted, dismantled or improved? What tangible steps can we take to support the parents, students and educators in our communities?
