Saturday, June 23, 2018
The University of the Arts Campus, Terra Hall (211 S.Broad Street, Philadelphia PA 19102)
$25 for full day of activities, includes lunch - Register Now
Sponsored in partnership by the Division of Continuing Studies at The University of the Arts, Mural Arts Philadelphia, and Stockton Rush Bartol Foundation.
Teaching artists bring their creative knowledge to K–12 classrooms, but there are many new opportunities for artists to engage communities that are outside of the traditional classroom. This symposium will introduce practitioners to experts in the fields of restorative practice, inclusion, creative aging, and even municipal government.
Reconsider how your artistic practice can be transferred into these new learning settings. We will showcase practical tools and skills to support your development in these areas; through panel discussions and breakout sessions, we’ll explore the ways that you can expand your network and build your teaching toolkit.
The symposium will feature a keynote address from Eric Booth and a day of programming at The University of the Arts.

Patrick Brennan Exhibit 'While You Were Sleeping // Pocket Noise' Currently on View

Patrick Brennan Postcard

Patrick Brennan Postcard

While You Were Sleeping and Pocket Noise by Patrick Brennan, a Philadelphia-based photographer and UArts Digital Photography Certificate candidate, are currently on view on the 9th floor of Terra Hall.

While You Were Sleeping is a collection of digital photographs documenting celestial lights. Cinematic images depict dramatic skies patiently captured ib dark, clear nights.

Pocket Noise is comprised of images mined from accidental pocket photos, a common digital photography blunder. Brennan manipulates these seemingly banal mishaps, uncovering celebratory, psychedelic abstractions.

You can preview some of his work here.

The exhibition is FREE & open to the public.
