PTO is pleased to announce one of its first regional activities, sponsored by the Teachers’ Guild, Department of Education at Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia:
Devising Civic Practice: Theatre, Participation and Dialogue, facilitated by Michael Rohd, founder of the Center for Performance and Civic Practice and artistic director of Sojourn Theater Company
Date: Friday, April 3, 2015
Location: MacLean Auditorium, Presser Hall, Agnes Scott College, Decatur, GA
Fee: No fee! Free to all!
As many communities have discovered, the arts are a potent tool for impact. Artists and arts educators have long known that aligning with community needs has multiple benefits, both spiritual and practical.
Michael Rohd, founder of the Center for Performance and Civic Practice and artistic director of Sojourn Theater Company, will offer insights into developing collaborative projects with community and civic organizations and engaging in needs-focused practice that reveals new ways of using the assets and experiences of artists to build healthier communities and new organizational stakeholders.
Michael will share his expertise and methodologies for cross-sector arts-based collaborations in this participatory workshop. Anyone involved in arts education can use these skills to engage in the kind of community building that can increase impact, expand local civic capacity, meet community needs, build support for and participation in the arts, and engage with diverse constituents in important new ways.
