Invitation to Arts and Learning “Hub”


You and your colleagues are invited to the Canadian Network for Arts and Learning (CNAL) “hub” held in Regina on Tuesday, March 14th from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. The hub is for anyone involved in arts and learning – artists, arts educators, academics, researchers and arts organizations.

The Hub is free, and a light supper will be provided. To help with catering numbers, please register here.

The Hub is presented by the Canadian Network for Arts and Learning in partnership with the Sask. Arts Alliance and the University of Regina. It will include sessions on “Artful Practices on Storytelling” and also help CNAL with its research study to reenergize UNESCO’s goals for the development of arts education (the SEOUL Agenda.) 

Program | Tuesday, March 14th | 4 – 7 p.m. | University of Regina, Education Building, Room ED 230

4:00 p.m.   Opening remarks

4:15              Artful Practices in Story Telling – concurrent workshops

Kathryn Ricketts will lead Artful Practices on Storytelling, a series of dynamic concurrent workshops with a selection of artists/teachers who have backgrounds in the K – 12 context. Together participants will explore new methods in Dance, Theatre and Visual Arts with a focus on personal stories as the foundation. The workshop will end with collective 'incubation/application' whereby the participants can synthesize these experiences towards their own teaching contexts, personal styles and interests.

5:15              Working (Light) Supper: Artful Practices – Incubation/Reflection

5:45              Advocacy for Arts and Learning – Re-energizing the Seoul Agenda

The Canadian Commission for UNESCO commissioned CNAL and the UNESCO Chair, Larry O’Farrell, to write a position paper as a first step to reengage the world in arts and learning. O’Farrell will lead a discussion seeking input on the importance of arts education and advocacy strategies.
