12 Days until the 6th Annual Progressive Ed Summit!  We have traveled far a and wide to go to conferences that push our thinking, and reenergize our commitment to progressive education.  The Summit is right here in Baltimore, and we invite you to come and enjoy a day of joyful learning.  This year at the Summit in addition to your choice of the 40+ workshops given by local practitioners, you will have an opportunity to participate in arts experiences such as:

Circus Arts – Juggling, 

Dance – Capoeira, Flamenco, Ugandan Folk

Music – Bucket Drumming, Hip Hop

Theatre – Improv, Monologue, Performance

Visual – Embroidery, Clay Arts

and many more.  We hope you will join in!  As John Dewey once wrote:

“Every art communicates because it expresses. It enables us to share vividly and deeply in meanings… For communication is not announcing things… Communication is the process of creating participation, of making common what had been isolated and singular… the conveyance of meaning gives body and definiteness to the experience of the one who utters as well as to that of those who listen.”
John Dewey, Art as Experience

We hope to see you there!

A word from our 2016 Keynote Speakers:

“Every child needs to have space for them to create. I decided we need to be the ones to put paintbrushes in the hands of kids.”  -Adarsh Alphons

“Good questions peel back surfaces, push past pat answers ensconced in yesterday’s certainty; they create paths of inquiry into the I-don’t-known.”  – Dr. Eric Booth

See you at the Summit!
