Collaborative Arts Institute

The 2016 Collaborative Arts Institute is now open for registration!

Calling all teachers, artists, community organizers, social workers, parents, and anyone interested in the philosophy and practices behind what we do here at Yes! And… Collaborative Arts!

Join us for this intensive training on collaboration, arts education, and Tribe Centered Learning. The Collaborative Arts Institute is an introduction to our unique pedagogical approach as well as to some of the the tools, games, activities, and vocabulary that we use to accomplish our artistic and educational goals.

At the Collaborative Arts Institute:

  • Participants will be introduced to the philosophy of Tribe Centered Learning as a unique educational model through lectures, discussions, and hands-on experience
  • Participants will experience learning as a member of a tribe through master classes, tribe time, and movement through the layers of Tribe Centered Learning
  • Participants will apply the Tribe Centered Learning philosophy to their own contexts through conversations and collaboratively creating and teaching classes

The Collaborative Arts Institute is in its 5th year, and each year’s program has its own unique, dynamic energy based on the interests and goals of our participants. We look forward to collaborating with you! We hope you will join us!
