Need help expanding your arts education programming? Introducing a new event to connect you with Chicago's educators...
The Chicago Office of Tourism and Culture, in partnership with the Department of Culture and Special Events, Arts Alliance Illinois, Ingenuity Incorporated, and Chicago Public Schools Office of Arts Education invite you to participate as a vendor in the first annual Arts & Education Exchange Summit!
Saturday, February 4, 2012 at the Chicago Cultural Center from 10am-2pm!
The Arts & Education Exchange Summit is a unique opportunity for arts and cultural organizations that offer educational programming to share their services with Chicago's educators. Modeled after Chicago's longest running arts resource fair Spotlight on Chicago, the Summit is an expo-style event where organizations are given a booth to present information about their arts residencies, field trip opportunities, and professional development programs to local teachers, principals, and educational coordinators.
The Arts & Education Exchange Summit is not a booking conference, but rather an information resource expo and a great opportunity to increase visibility, develop contacts, and network with peer organizations. In addition to the expo portion of the event, the Summit also offers professional development workshops that are crafted to give educators the tools they need to effectively partner with you in bringing arts education to every child in Chicago.
