ELAN’s Arts, Community, Education (ACE) Initiative is entering its second phase. Back in June, more than 50 artists and educators gathered together for the ACE Jam, a brainstorm day to imagine projects that would incorporate art and education in new ways. The goal was to think beyond ideas from existing cultural education programs, for example by pairing schools that don’t normally work together, combining elementary and high school classes, working with more than one artistic discipline, and linking schools with the larger community. ELAN circulated an ACE Initiative Projects Applicant Guide in August to solicit partners to bring projects to life. In October, five partners were selected.
Join us for an evening at Cafe Shaika where artists and arts lovers of all disciplines and backgrounds will have the opportunity to converse and connect with NDG based artists. Refreshments will be served and folks from across artistic communities will have the chance to meet and mingle!
