Brock’s future teachers have gained some new ideas about using art in the classroom thanks to the first ever Arts Matter conference held by the Faculty of Education.

More than 125 teacher candidates attended Arts Matter: Integrating the Arts Across the Curriculum on Oct. 28 and 29 at Brock’s Hamilton campus. Highlights included:

  • a keynote speech from arts advocate David Booth
  • a performance by Roseneath Theatre
  • 10 integrated arts workshops with skilled clinicians in drama, music, dance and visual arts
  • closing remarks by Fiona Blaikie, Dean of the Faculty of Education

The conference was organized by Shelley Griffin, Peter Vietgen and Kari-Lynn Winters, all faculty in the Department of Teacher Education.

“We look forward to the continuation of this event in future years,” Winters said.
