Fine Arts Symposium Proposals
  • Thank you for your interest in presenting at the St. Philip's 2019 Fine Arts Symposium. We invite arts professionals wishing to provide 75-minute informational sessions relevant to our 2019 theme: Creating Spaces for Our Children to Express Themselves, to apply for this year’s symposium. Our review and acceptance of proposals will be based on the applicant’s clear articulation of the following criteria: 1) how the content and skills taught in the session align to this year’s theme; 2) how summit attendees will be actively engaged during sessions; 3) what resources will be available to attendees post-summit to continue strategies and ideas presented during sessions; 4) culturally specific teaching tools that are easily adaptable in the classroom. 

    Accepted proposals will be notified on or before Aug. 15th. Presenters will also be registered as participants in the symposium and granted access to the luncheon with our guest presenter Debbie Allen and will also receive a complimentary swag bag. Speaker names, titles and descriptions will be entered in the program as they are written on the proposal application, so please ensure accurate spelling and grammar. Deadline to apply: August 5, 2019
