December 19 Whither Arts Education?

Jen Delos Reyes and Harrell Fletcher run the social practice art program at Portland State University. Jen Delos Reyes shares her thoughts this morning on arts education as a vehicle for worldchanging.

Academia is expensive and it is competitive, not only in a positive way. The same applies to the internecine warfare between faculty over appointments. And of course, those same primitive impulses play out in society at large.

What if art and design were human-focused? What would change in arts education? Could those creatives create a better world? That is this morning's discussion.

It is part of the always excellent Creative Mornings. Advance tickets are required, but the video will be up on the web to be seen for free within a few weeks.
