The FAAE Summit brings together all stakeholders in Florida Arts Education – dance, music, theatre, and visual art educators, school and district level administrators, arts supervisors, community arts organizations, teaching artists, and arts advocates with the common goal of improving, enhancing, and promoting high quality arts education in Florida. Each year the Summit features dynamic keynote speakers, diverse breakout sessions, engaging panel discussions, inspiring performances and exhibits, recognition of the Florida Arts Model Schools designees, and the annual FAAE Leadership Awards Ceremony. The 2017 Summit will focus on cultivating high-quality arts education for ALL while celebrating the unique art of Florida. We will demonstrate best practices in arts education for all learners, including diverse learning styles, demographic groups, students with special needs, community learners, beyond K-12, and more. The 2017 Summit will also highlight the art of Florida. We are thrilled to host a special performance of “Legendary Florida,” a cross-curricular piece featuring music by Florida composer, Robert Kerr, based upon the paintings of Jackson Walker.
