TEACH 4 AMERIKA
A RALLY FOR ANARCHY IN ARTS EDUCATION
Saturday April 9, 4-5:30pm
...@ Regis Center for Art, In-Flux Auditorium
Free + open to the public
Hosted in Minneapolis by the Walker Art Center, University of Minnesota, Soap Factory, 1419, and the Experimental College of the Twin Cities
Teach 4 Amerika combines the spectacle and energy of a political rally with the substantive dialog of a conversation series, featuring a multimedia presentation by the group, balloons, t-shirts, and music from local pep bands...
A 5-week, 11-city, coast-to-coast road trip that crosses state lines and institutional boundaries to inspire and enable local art students to define the future of their own educational experience.
Traveling the byways of America in a limousine painted as a school bus, BHQF brings together concerned educators, artists, arts administrators, and—most importantly—students to BRAINSTORM THE FUTURE OF ART SCHOOLS.
***What are they for?
***How should they be organized?
***If not for careers, what is the essence of art itself?
These fundamental questions have long haunted artists, and the BHQF are interested in putting the questions back in the hands of students across America through a combination of dynamic public rallies and intimate conversations.
“Teach 4 Amerika aims to empower artists to create the education they need and not beholden them to a system that professionalizes them out of their own specificity,” said the BRUCE HIGH QUALITY FOUNDATION.
“The Teach 4 Amerika tour will highlight the contradictions and crisis operating at the center of art education in the United States today,” said NATO THOMPOSON, Chief Curator, CREATIVE TIME.
