Join mayor, superintendent and youth in discussion about arts learning, Feb. 16

You are invited to join Mayor Mike McGinn, Seattle Public Schools Interim Superintendent Susan Enfield and youth for a lively panel discussion and community forum about arts education, creative learning and student success. The 2012 Arts Education Forum is 6:30 to 8 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 16, at Seattle University’s Pigott Auditorium.

Bring your questions for our panel of students and policymakers and learn how the city of Seattle and Seattle Public Schools are partnering to help ensure arts learning can be a part of a basic education for all students.

Learn about a coordinated effort to create a comprehensive K-12 visual and performing arts plan for Seattle Public Schools. The district recently received a grant from The Wallace Foundation to engage the community in developing a plan to provide greater arts education access citywide.

Children are welcome. Free supervised arts activities and snacks will be provided for school-aged children. To sign up, call (206) 684-7372 by Friday, Feb. 10.

 The forum is presented by the Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs, Seattle Arts Commission and Seattle Public Schools.
