Join us each May as we host our annual 2-day Arts in Education Showcase at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey on the campus of Drew University, in Madison, New Jersey. Registration begins at 9am and back to back performances (15 minutes each) run from 9:30 – 1:30 allowing you to preview 15 performances each day in a wide variety of disciplines; Music, Dance, Theatre, Visual Arts, Poetry and Storytelling – all available for in-school presentations, workshops and residencies. In addition to previewing the programs, this event is great for networking with other schools, comparing notes and meeting with the artists during breaks and at the conclusion of the day.
Light refreshments will be provided but you are also welcome to pack a lunch and use the benches outside the theatre if you’d care to take a longer lunch break.There is free parking on the campus for this event and there will be signs for parking as well as assistance from campus security if you need directions.
YOUR MEMBERSHIP MATTERS. Morris Arts serves as a regional resource (connecting schools in 11 counties to exceptional arts programs ) and we do not charge any commissions or fees on assemblies or workshops. Instead – we ask schools and artists to support our work through membership.
Most schools renew their annual $65. school membership in May, that way, in addition to attending the Showcase, members schools will receive a copy of our annual Arts in Education Program Guide and invitations to attend our Cultural Arts Exchange on May 19th and our Artist Residency Roundtable on September 23rd, 2014.
Member schools may register up to 5 guests from their school per Showcase day. The School membership form can be printed out from our website and mailed to Morris Arts or brought to the Showcase.
If your school is unable to pay a membership fee please contact Barbara Reuther for more information firstname.lastname@example.org or call 973-285-5115 ext 16.
If you are a Cultural Arts Planner for a community, library, YMCA or other organization and would like to attend the Showcase – please contact Barbara Reuther to register.
