AISD-Any Given Child Information Meeting

Monday, February 6, 2012 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Attention Arts Educators and Teaching Artists!

Want to work with AISD Schools? Interested in Arts in Education?

Learn how to qualify for arts education work opportunities with AISD through their new RFP process & get an update on the Kennedy Center Any Given Child Initiative.

Greg Goodman, Director of Fine Arts, AISD, will announce the details of a newly implemented Request for Proposals (RFP) to solicit community artists and arts organizations to become approved vendors for the Austin Independent School District. This new system will replace the one-year agreements issued in the past, with a three-year agreement for successful applicants. While being on teh list does not guarantee work, it will be a new requirement for all artists and arts organizations working in schools. The process is simple and straightforward; we invite you to learn more.

Brent Hasty, mindPOP Executive director, will share information about The Kennedy Center Any Given Child Initiative, a partenership among the AISD, the City of Austin, and the arts community. In August 2011, The Kennedy Center announced Austin as the 7th city to be selected to participate in creating a long-range arts education plan for students in grades K-8. Learn more about the initiative and how you can provide critical information that will help to guide strategic planning for Austin's arts education future.
