[teacherartexchange] PBS Art 21 National Youth Engagement Initiative

---------

Dear Art Educators,

Kelly Williamson from Art 21 sent me a request to get information out
to you. Art 21 is a PBS documentary series on contemporary art, as
well as related educational resources and programs
(www.pbs.org/art21).

Art 21 is launching a national youth engagement initiative, Art:21@School
and After-School. They are putting out a call for proposals for creative
ways to use the Art:21 series as an educational tool.

They have funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to offer
incentive grants to ten pilot sites, as well as free materials such as
screening DVDs, Educators' Guides, and screening toolkits to another 40
sites. The goal is to reach organizations and teachers to let them know
about the resources they have made available and to support the campaign.

Here is the information on the initiative:

Dear colleagues,

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like more information
on the following initiatives. I look forward to hearing from you.

Best,
Kelly

EMAIL YOUR NAME AND AFFILIATION TO OUTREACH@ART21.ORG TO RECEIVE THE
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Explore contemporary art in your community and make valuable
connections to local institutions and resources by taking part in one
of Art21's piloting outreach initiatives.
To inspire broad participation, Art21 will offer a limited number of
incentive grants and free Art:21 materials.  Online project toolkits
containing publicity aids, planning materials, and educational
resources will be available for download upon registration at
www.art21.org later this spring.
NEW FOR 2006...
YOUTH ENGAGEMENT introduces teens, educators, and their communities to
contemporary art. Pilot partners participating in this initiative will
submit creative ideas for using the Art:21 series to provoke thought
and discussion.  A wide range of after-school programs and other
youth-focused organizations will plan screening events, discussion
forums, and hands-on activities for student, parent, and teacher
audiences.
ONGOING INITIATIVES...
Independent Screenings - Art21 extends an open invitation for
organizations and individuals to host their own Art:21 screenings. In
keeping with Art21's participatory model, partners are encouraged to
include discussion forums or other interactive components in their
event.  Programming ideas and past examples can be found at
http://www.pbs.org/art21/events/screenings/index.html. Online
screening toolkits for all 12 episodes of the series will be
downloadable later this spring.
COMING SUMMER 2007 - SEASON FOUR PREVIEW SCREENINGS
Mark your calendars!
To celebrate Art:21's Season Four broadcast, museums, schools,
community-based organizations, and individuals host preview events
before the season premiere to inspire new audiences and alert local
communities about the broadcast. Almost 200 organizations in all 50
states and 6 different countries participated in Art21's Season Three
preview screening initiative.
