More about the Teaching Artists Summit from Four Corners Fellowship:
In our experience, the best version of a teaching artist is a working artist who is dedicated to their own craft, but who is also committed to the empowerment of young people and the cultivation of community. They are not interested in solitary confinement for the development of their art, but are invested in engagement and education that increases their students’ and mentees’ access to skills, resources, justice, safety, and joy. Finding teaching artists who are dedicated to these principles is both rare and also possible, but so many of them are isolated from each other, forced to “re-invent the wheel” within their own region, without a space to share best practices, seek help, or recharge.
We know how valuable these humans are, how demanding their work is, and we wanted an opportunity to identify, celebrate, and reward them for their work. We also wanted to offer them a place to gather, create, and build together.
NURTURING CRITICAL MOMENTS OF IMAGINATION
AIR Serenbe, the non-profit artist residency program of the Serenbe Institute, invests in artists of all disciplines. We provide the time and space necessary for the creation of new work, as well as focused public programming that brings audiences in close contact with creative processes and practices.
