League webinar: The New Ecosystem for Community-Centered Commitments

Posted on: September 14, 2020

Today’s rapidly evolving cultural ecosystem offers orchestras opportunities to accelerate practices that put community and school partnerships at the center of their missions. On Wednesday, September 23, 2020, 1:00pm Eastern/10:00am Pacific, the League of American Orchestras will present The New Ecosystem for Community-Centered Commitments, a 90-minute webinar that explores the current context for growing equitable participation and co-creation of musical experiences in person and online. The webinar will look at how orchestras can collaborate with public education and community partners in fresh ways to offer social-emotional support and engagement during this period of isolation—and beyond. Facilitators Eric Booth, arts learning consultant, and Lecolion Washington, executive director of the Community Music Center of Boston, will be joined by a panel of orchestra representatives and community partners. The webinar is directed at executive directors, youth orchestra directors, trustees, education and community development staff, musicians, artistic staff, teaching artists, and anyone seeking to learn more about engaging in community and school partnerships in new ways.
