Virtual: ‘Culture and the Arts on a Global Stage’
June 22, 2021 at 10:00 am - June 24, 2021 at 12:00 pm$75
Join UNC-Chapel Hill Worldview from June 22-24 at 10:00 a.m. for a K-12 and community college virtual program. Musicians and poets, artists and dancers have played and written, painted and danced their way around the world through centuries – illuminating the time and the interplay of peoples and societies. In this program, UNC-Chapel Hill World View provides a professional development opportunity for all K-12 and community college educators to explore examples of the ways different cultures use the arts to celebrate, reflect, document and heal their societies. The arts have a unique ability to open new dialogues and stimulate ideas which leads to a deeper understanding of our global connectivity.
UNC-Chapel Hill World View participants will be introduced to a variety of cultures and explore ways in which culture and the arts can be integrated across disciplines and grade levels. University professors and performing artists will share their expertise and their craft. Global education resources will be provided, offering practical solutions for classroom use and equipping participants with knowledge to prepare students to engage in our interconnected and diverse world.
The UNC-Duke Area Studies Centers are pleased to offer a limited number of registration scholarships to participants of this workshop. Scholarship recipients are expected to submit a 2-paragraph reflection following the event, detailing how the program increased their understanding of the specific world region (connected to the center that underwrites their scholarship) and how they intend to include information on the cultures and arts of that region into their classroom as a result of the program. Scholarship recipients consent to the publication or dissemination of this deliverable for the centers’ promotional use. Scholarship recipients will also be contacted by the chosen area studies center to discuss ongoing support of their global engagement.
