Forum: Fri, Oct 30, 2009, 2:00 – 5:00 pm

Louisiana’s Cultural Economy Summit to be held in New Orleans, October 29-30. At The Summit’s Arts-in-Education discussion, “When Art Makes the Grade”, a panel of nationally-known educators will tell of their experiences and give you a roadmap to help create a comprehensive arts program in your school.

There will also be an arts-in-education luncheon at the Bourbon House in the historic French Quarter (included in registration fee) where you can network with other educators and administrators to discuss this creative and imaginative new program in a more intimate setting.

Beginning with the 2010-11 school year, all Louisiana K-8 public schools will be required to embrace an innovative and comprehensive arts program, requiring 60 minutes of instruction in the performing arts and 60 minutes of instruction in the visual arts each week.

Register or call (225) 342-8200.
