Culminating Project ResourcesWatch Jeff's Think Tank
About the Project
Jeff’s Think Tank focused on empowering Teaching Artists to become leaders in creating cross-disciplinary STEAM partnerships.
The follow-up working group is invited to join together and consider the following:
Historically, Teaching Artists have been expected to wait for educators and administrators to initiate partnerships and residencies with their goals established. But as professional creatives we can "flip" this arrangement to create more powerful and innovative projects and programs. Like a theater set designer designing a set before there is a script. What happens when Teaching Artists "go first" and convene a meeting of potential stakeholders, and allow the sparks to fly?
This working group will pilot, document and report back the ways in which Teaching Artists can become leaders in establishing unusual or unconventional partnerships. What worked? What didn’t? How can others do the same?
The format of the culminating resource will depend on the group’s preference, but it will be made freely available online via the ITAC website with a view toward encouraging more TAs to be bold in their approaches to cross-disciplinary work.
