Thank you for your interest in Professional Development for High School Educators: Examining Art and Social Justice through Images, Sound and Movement. We have reached maximum capacity for this program and registration is now closed. Please check our calendar for upcoming Educator programs.

Join us for a day of learning with Museum staff and teaching artists focused on social justice themes in dialogue, art, music and dance. Rooted in exhibitions on view at the Studio Museum and the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI)—including The Window and the Breaking of the Window at the Studio Museum and HOME, MEMORY, AND FUTURE at CCCADI—the day will provide inspiration for curriculum-building through interactive workshops and exploration of noted works by artists such as Devin Allen, Elizabeth Catlett-Mora, LeRoy Clarke and Hiram Maristany. This professional development day offers a space to examine notions of social justice in the historical and present-day lives of African-descendant communities as reflected in artists' work.

This professional learning day is FREE and RSVP is required. The program begins at CCCADI promptly 9:00 am. Enter at 103 E. 125th Street. Space is limited and available on a first come, first-served basis. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Educator Programs at the Studio Museum are made possible by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs; New York State Council on the Arts; the Edward W. & Stella C. Van Houten Memorial Fund; the May & Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, Inc.; Con Edison; the Joseph and Joan Cullman Foundation for the Arts; and Wells Fargo.

Public and Education programs of CCCADI are sponsored by the New York Department of Cultural Affairs, the New York State Council on the Arts, with major support for the exhibition: HOME, MEMORY, AND FUTURE by The Ford Foundation.
