Teaching Artists Summit 2016

Keynote Talk by Sabina Ott

April 2, 2016


Chicago Artists Coalition & Hyde Park Art Center were honored to present Sabina Ott's keynote talk at the first annual day-long convening bringing together teaching artists from across the city for professional development and community-building around critical issues in teaching artistry today. Click below for a PDF of Sabina Ott's keynote talk at the Summit, in which she discussed the evolution of her teaching practice throughout the course of her career as well as the principles that guide her both in the classroom and in her studio practice.

Teaching Artists Summit arose from a shared desire to provide new opportunities for teaching artists from throughout Chicago to come together to develop their professional practice and connect with others. With an overarching focus on strengthening the relationship between studio practice and teaching practice, the Teaching Artist Summit also featured teaching artist-led workshops and an interactive curriculum slam. 

Teaching Artists Summit is open to practitioners from all disciplines, geographic areas, and age groups looking to inspire lively and meaningful dialogue with practical implications in the classroom and studio. Our hope is that the Teaching Artists Summit will be an open and inclusive gathering that fosters a sense of community and mutual support for teaching artists that will continue to grow through workshops and informal meet-ups throughout the year.

To that end, Chicago Artists Coalition is happy to present Sara Black's workshop "Documentation & Marketing for Pedagogical Practices" in their West Loop gallery on Monday, August 29, 2016. More info + register here.
