Entrance: 2nd Floor, Meeting in Mulberry Conference room
An ELNYA Creative Conversation: "How Do We Create a Future for the Arts Through Education?"
When we talk about the challenges of sustaining our arts institutions and a place for the arts in our cultural landscape, we regularly return to the importance of education--in terms of creating new audiences, fostering artistic development, and training new leaders in the field. At the beginning of a new decade, ELNYA is looking to the future, and wondering which topics today will become the backbone of arts education in the future. This conversation will feature three NYC leaders in arts education challenged to consider 'hot topics' in the field of arts education.
Our guests include:
Catherine Fukushima, Independent Consultant: Arts, Culture, Arts Education
Katherine Gressel, Freelance Artist and Consultant, Public Art/Community Art
Tim Lord, Co-Executive Director DreamYard Project,
(Moderator) Nathan Sensel, Associate Educator, MoMA
WHEN: Monday March 1, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
WHERE: WNYC Jerome Greene Performance Space, 44 Charlton Street, New York, NY
REGISTER: Please register and share your thoughts. Themes mostly commonly identified by you will shape the March 1st conversation. $10 suggested cash donation at the door
MORE: Panelists will continue the conversation at an ELNYA HAPPY HOUR following the panel at Dog Ear Tavern, 333 Hudson Street

The Student Network Exploring Arts & Culture (SNEAC) is a nonprofit, student organization at the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at New York University. SNEAC's mission is to promote informed discourse and activity in the arts and cultural sector, with an emphasis on policy and administration. As the only organization at NYU Wagner dedicated to the arts and cultural policy, SNEAC supplements the Wagner school's programs and specializations. We accomplish this through dynamic programming to address the intersection of cultural policy with other policy fields, arts administration and advocacy, cultural diplomacy, and urban revitalization through the arts.
Formed in 2003 in response to the lack of resources, courses, and events dedicated to cultural policy and arts administration at Wagner, SNEAC seeks to partner with other graduate student organizations and academic programs throughout the city to engage and inform the cultural and academic community. In April 2005, SNEAC received the NYU Presidential Service Award for programming, and in recent months has been recognized for its conversations surrounding National Arts Policy.
