Out There: A Symposium on Contemporary Practice, Art and Civility.

Saturday, April 26­­
10 am – 6 pm

K–12 educators are invited to a daylong symposium exploring the relationship between contemporary practice, civic engagement, art, and the work of museums. This event brings together artists, activists, curators, educators, and historians from around the world. Learn more.

The themes driving this symposium—collaboration, community outreach, civic engagement, and the role of the arts—have clear pedagogical implications in and beyond the walls of the classroom.

Teachers will gather during the lunch hour for a special breakout meal. Hosted and conceptualized by artist and activist collective Potluck: Chicago, this lunch will provide a sociable space for educators to collectively and creatively explore the conference’s driving questions. Attendees will receive CPDUs. Vouchers for free parking in the MCA garage will be provided pending availability. $6 Teacher Tickets include conference admission and lunch. Purchase online.
