Registration Open for Next Critical Issues Forum, April 20

Dear Colleague:

The Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education’s first Critical Issues Forum of 2017 will shine the klieg light on arts education and its value to the state’s economic bottom line.  If Georgia is to remain competitive in a rapidly-changing global economy, our future workforce must learn 21st century innovation and creative thinking skills alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education.

“Arts Learning and the Innovation Workforce,” co-sponsored by the Georgia Council for the Arts, will be held Thursday, April 20, 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., at the Georgia Film Academy, Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayetteville.  This Forum will feature a keynote conversation between Rodney Sampson, Partner, Diversity & Inclusion, TechSquare Labs, and Martha Dalton, former teacher and now WABE-Radio education reporter.  They will discuss the role of arts education in meeting current and future workforce needs in Georgia.  A high-powered panel discussion with audience Q/A will follow.

Registration is easy.  Either fill out the information form and fax it back or register electronically.  Please share this with associates who might be interested.  All of us at the Georgia Partnership look forward to seeing you soon!
