Welcome!

Hello everyone!

This new blog is dedicated to exploring the intersections of arts education and community development.  I am particularly interested in how the arts can help young people develop the capacity to be empathetic, bridge cultural and generational gaps, and create a more peaceful world.

In the coming months I will be traveling to Singapore to embark upon an action research study on empathy and the arts, exploring how Singaporean schools use the arts to help young people develop into citizens of the world.

I am traveling to Singapore on a grant through the Fulbright Distinguished Award in Teaching Program.  For more information on the program (or to apply yourself!) see:  http://www.fulbrightteacherexchange.org/dteIndex.cfm.  The next application deadline is December 15, 2011.

Thank you for joining me on this journey.  I look forward to the conversation.
