A call has gone out to all professional artists on Vancouver Island who might be interested in working with young people and educators in schools about an educational opportunity taking place this fall.

The Arts Integration Learning Lab is a professional development experience for artists of all disciplines, designed to build their capacity and position them to work alongside educators in schools. This event offers a series of five practical, experiential learning workshops taking place in Nanaimo, from Nov. 14 to 18.

Professional artists living onVancouver Island and the coastal region are invited to apply by Sept. 30 at artstarts.com/infusion

The cost for artists selected to participate in the Learning Lab will be subsidized and covers tuition, program materials and lunch. A subsidy for accommodation is also available. This opportunity is made possible through funding support from BC Arts Council and the provincial government’s Creative Futures program.

The Arts Integration Learning Lab is presented by ArtStarts in Schools, a not-for-profit organization that provides innovative arts programs for young people, practical resources for teachers and artists, and leadership in advocacy for arts in education.
