Lincoln Center Coming to MSU

Jan 26, 2018

The Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts and Culture has formed a strategic partnership with New York-based Lincoln Center Education (LCE) to provide advanced learning for teaching artists and educators in Texas and the mid-America region.

The weeklong forum, which takes place May 20-26, 2018 at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas, will include classes, workshops, keynote presentations, and plenary discussions led by national leaders in the field. The 2018 Lincoln Center Education in Wichita Falls Forum is open to artists, educators, and youth development workers throughout the state and mid-America region. Registration opens February 1 and is limited to 35 participants.

A three-member team from Lincoln Center Education Summer Forum will be in residence to lead workshops that explore the process of imaginative learning and best practices in arts education. Jean Taylor, an internationally respected teaching artist at the prestigious Lincoln Center Education and member of The Teaching Artist Journal’s editorial board, will lead the staff team from LCE. Additionally, Eric Booth, known as “the father of the teaching artist profession,” will be joining the team as a guest workshop leader for part of the week.

The Teaching Artist Development Labs are an intensive short-term career catalyst for artists who work in education and community settings. Registration will open February 1st and be limited to 35 participants.
