an opportunity to share the great curriculum work that you do.
The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago will host a Curriculum Slam! at the NAEA conference.
The Curriculum Slam! is a fast-paced format based on pecha kucha presentations. We’ll use a 16 slide, 30 second per slide format.
You can see the video of last year’s Slam here: https://naea.digication.com/omg/Welcome/published
The theme for 2016 is
Leading Contemporary Creative Research
through Art, Media, & Design Curriculum
It’s scheduled at a great time—Saturday 11 am to 12:50 pm.
The goal of the Slam! is to share K-12 art education that arises out of contemporary artmaking approaches.
The 2015 Slam! included presentations on performance art, visualizing big data, re-writing the “rules” of an art room,
humorous videos as cultural critique, designing 8-bit video games and design literacy.
The application process is simple—a couple of paragraphs and 3 slides.
The Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art Teachers Advisory Committee will select proposals in mid-January.

Extended Deadline for applications is Sunday January 10, 2016 at midnight Chicago time.
Information Regarding the Arts and Economic Stimulus: There has been much public conversation recently regarding the role of the arts and culture industry in economic stimulus. Following is information that seeks to clarify this issue through two key points: that the arts and culture industry is a sector of the economy just like any other with workers who pay taxes, mortgages, rent and contribue in other ways to the economy; and that the National Endowment for the Arts is uniquely positioned to assist in job stimulation for that industry.
