ABOUT THE INSTITUTE
The Teaching Artist Institute of Rochester is a multi-day intensive workshop for creative writers, visual artists, musicians, dancers, multi-media artists, and theater artists to expand their teaching practice, explore social justice pedagogy, get resources on the business of teaching artistry, and connect with educators and cultural centers in Rochester as well as New York City.
With funding thanks to the New York State Council on the Arts, Community-Word Project's Teaching Artist Project staff have created this training in partnership with arts community members from the Rochester area. The Institute's training curriculum is based on Community-Word Project's Creative Process exploration methods, teaching practices and arts-in-education philosophy developed over the last 22 years. The training is free for teaching artists. In this training, participants will:
Connect with other teaching artists from Rochester, New York City, and Upstate New York
Expand their impact in teaching for social justice
Deepen their teaching with experiential, inquiry, and reflection processes
Explore creative processes and how to bring that work to their classrooms
Build new strategies for creating a positive classroom culture
Navigate the business of teaching artistry, including promotion, marketing, and building relationships with potential clients
Engage with arts education stakeholders in the area and facilitate conversations around the future of teaching artistry in Rochester
