LACE: LEADERSHIP IN ARTS & CULTURAL EDUCATION
LACE is a new program crafted by Creative Generation emerging from a global study on the topic integrating theories of mindfulness, critical reflection, arts entrepreneurship, and educational futures to cultivate the next generation of leaders working in the cultural and education sectors. The aim of this work is to prepare individuals who are equipped to reimagine the structures of leaders, evolve cultural and education ecosystems, and develop sustainable systems which cultivate the creative capabilities of young people.
LITTLE KIDS ROCK
Little Kids Rock transforms lives by restoring, expanding, and innovating music education in our schools. Our network of thousands of K-12 teachers across 48 states leads a national movement that brings innovative and inclusive music education to students.
MORE THAN 500,000 KIDS CURRENTLY PARTICIPATE IN LITTLE KIDS ROCK PROGRAMS NATIONWIDE.
Using genres including rock, pop, Latin, and rap, our program empowers teachers to build music programs as diverse as the kids they serve. Our students see themselves reflected in their classes, which strengthens their connection to their school, their peers, and their community. Little Kids Rock also donates necessary instruments, and curriculum, meeting a key need of many school music programs.
FLORIDA TEACHER OF THE YEAR: DR. DRE GRAHAM
“Dr. Dre,” as he is affectionately known, was a finalist for Hillsborough Teacher of the Year, twice. In 2019, when he won, he dazzled the audience by singing the opening lines of a spiritual hymn.
"Education is human right. As the most sentient beings on the planet, we should be afforded an opportunity to grow into the best version of ourselves, and it's our jobs as educators to make that happen and to facilitate that."
Dr. Graham holds a Bachelor’s and Master’s in Music Education (University of Florida), a Master’s in Educational Leadership (Concordia University) and a PhD in Music Education (University of South Florida).
Dr. Dre Graham
Friday evening, we kick off with the President's Reception.
On Saturday all attendees will enjoy our Keynote Luncheon.
Finally, we will close the weekend with the Sunday Leadership Awards brunch celebrating key leaders in arts education.
