Monday, October 29, 2018 - 13:30

NOTE: Due to technical difficulties the public webinar has been cancelled. However, we will have an archive version of the presentation by the end of this week.

On October 29, 2018, the National Endowment for the Arts will host a 90-minute webinar titled “New Research on the Arts & Early Childhood: A Symposium”. The webinar will showcase a series of research articles that will appear in a special section of Early Childhood Research Quarterly (ECRQ). This special section focuses on the nature, value, and the impact of the arts for children in their early years. Copies of the issue will be printed and distributed in September 2018.

Featured speakers include authors Brian Kisida (University of Missouri), Eleanor Brown (West Chester University), and Amy Susman-Stillman (University of Minnesota), with guest speakers Rocio Galarza (Sesame Workshop) and Jane Best (Arts Education Partnership). Additional introductory remarks will be made by co-guest editors Adam Winsler (George Mason University) and Melissa Menzer (National Endowment for the Arts), as well as by Sunil Iyengar, director of the NEA’s Office of Research & Analysis.
