Make Plans

The New York City Arts in Education Roundtable helps arts organizations share information and resources. Among other community-building events, they produce the annual Face to Face Conference.

Oh look, someone's throwing a party.


WHEN: Monday, June 22, 2009, 4:00-7:00 PM
WHERE: Kaplan Penthouse, Rose Building, 10th Floor, 70 Lincoln Center Plaza, West 65th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam


  • The Announcement of Election Results for the Board of Directors and other Annual Business
  • Panel Discussion on Federal Arts Education Policies, Programs, and Advocacy Issues (details below)
  • End-Of-Year Reception

Good Food! Good Drink! Good Company! No RSVP Required

Panel Description: Two experts on National Arts Education Issues will discuss the latest developments in the arenas of policy, legislation, and assessment. Narric Rome, Director of Federal Affairs at Americans for the Arts, and Najean Lee, Government Affairs & Education Advocacy Manager at the League of American Orchestras, will report to us on such vital topics as the activities of the Arts Education Working Group, the reauthorization of NCLB, the Federal Stimulus Bill and its Social Innovation Fund, the National Service Initiative, and the implications of the soon-to-be released NAEP arts assessments. It promises to be a rich and informative presentation and will include ample opportunity for questions and responses from the floor. Kati Koerner, Director of Education at Lincoln Center Theater and Chair of the Roundtable's Advocacy Committee will moderate the discussion and help us begin to translate this report from Washington into an action agenda for New York.

Directions to Kaplan Penthouse: Walk west from Broadway along the north side of 65th Street (past the construction); take the stairs (or the elevator just past the stairs) up to the promenade; walk past the Walter Reade Theatre to the Rose Building. Take elevator to the 10th Floor.
