Kristen Marstaller, Fine Arts Instructional
will announce the details of a newly implemented Request for Proposals
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 three-year agreements
for successful applicants. While being on the list does not guarantee work,
it will be a new requirement for all artists and arts organizations working
in schools. www.austinisdfinearts.org
Brent Hasty, mindPOP Executive Director,
will share information about The
Kennedy Center Any Given Child
Initiative, a partnership among the AISD, 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 art future. www.mindPOP.org
