USSEA/InSEA Regional Conference June 11-June 13 2010
Youth and Community Development: How the Arts Serve Economically Impoverished Communities
At State University of New York at New Paltz
New Paltz, New York
Mission of Conference
In a global climate of economic decline, the arts are in even more danger of becoming expendable. This conference seeks to recognize the arts as critical to community building and therefore needs to be, as ever, a partner in regenerating our culture. We intend to challenge the boundaries of art education by exploring partnerships with art therapy, public art, and the Internet community. While this conference is directed towards those communities currently economically disenfranchised in New York’s Ulster, Dutchess and Orange counties, it will also broaden conversations to include all communities, especially those who may become weakened in future economic situations.
