How do we become the arts city we say we are? Does San Francisco and the Bay Area truly fit the vision of an “arts city” template?

Arts leaders seek to create education programs and partnerships that are sustainable and have impact on the community. To make this happen it’s important to have strong models and a healthy ecosystem that includes the organizations, partners, and teaching artists. In this workshop we will discuss the best practices as well as challenges (and solutions) of recruiting, retaining and developing teaching artists; teacher advocacy; and explore how we can collaborate and potentially share resources as organizations.
