On January 10th the Getty Education Institute will host a national
conference, Educating for the Workplace Through the Arts, in Los
Angeles. We invite you to participate in the conference by listening
to a LIVE broadcast of the event over the Internet. You can hear
education reform leaders, business leaders, and arts education
experts discussing the unique value of arts education in developing
skills essential for success in today's and tomorrow's workplace.

The conference starts at 9 am Pacific Time on Friday and last until
about 5pm. Just go to the ArtsEdNet home page
( anytime during the day and click on
the Conference link at the top right of the page. You will get to a
web page which has a description of the day's topics and speakers and
a link that starts the conference audio feed playing on your computer.
Whenever you tune in you will hear exactly what is going on at the
conference at the time.

To listen to the conference you will need to have a sound card on
your computer and a 14.4 modem or faster connection to the Internet.
You will also need to download a free program called Real Audio onto
your PC or Macintosh. The Conference page on ArtsEdNet includes a
link to the RealAudio web site where you can download their free
software. Depending on how fast your Internet link is, it may take
you a total of 15 minutes to an hour to download and install the
RealAudio software.

By the end of January we will post an exhibition on the ArtsEdNet web
site summarizing the conference. We will have photos, text summaries
with the best quotes from each session, and probably audio selections
from each session.

We hope you will find the conference stimulating and that you find
issues worthy of further discussion. If your computer can handle
RealAudio I strongly encourage you to tune in to at least part of the
live conference this Friday and experience this event as it happens.
