Required Events

Schools gain eligibility for Artists in Schools grants when Cultural Arts Representatives participate in two required events.

Training Sessions
Training sessions are offered prior to each season. Each session runs about an hour and a half. For the 2020-21 year, all training will be offered virtually. Cultural Arts Representative must attend one of the following sessions:

Saturday, August 1 at 10:00 am
Tuesday, August 4 at 2:00 pm
Wednesday, August 5 at 6:00 pm

Artists in Schools Expo
Formerly known as the Cultural Arts Booking Fair, the Artists in Schools Expo is an annual trade style event that features approximately 80 Artists in Schools artists. In addition to meeting with Cultural Arts Representative individually at booths, many participating artists also showcase their talents by offering excerpts of their performances.

This event is free and open to the public, administrators, teachers, and even fellow parents may attend. Children are welcome to attend as well.

For the 2020-21 year event, the Artists in Schools Expo will be provided through a series of virtual sessions that will take place over the course of four days. Cultural Arts Representatives may log on to just two (at least two are required to obtain eligibility) or as many as desired.

Thursday, August 6  at 2:00 pm or 4:00 pm
Saturday, August 8  at 9:00 am, 12:00 pm or 2:00 pm
Wednesday, August 12 at 12:00 pm or 3:00 pm
Saturday, August 15  9:00 am, 12:00 pm or 2:00 pm

Note: Children are welcome to watch these sessions with you! Teachers, administrators, and other parents may log on as well. We will have a sharable link for you closer to the first date.
