NEWS & UPDATES
Forthcoming NAEA National Art Education Association Convention
March 26-28, 2020 in Minneapolis:
I am presenting 2 solo sessions, and I am a panelist on a session:
-- Countering Islamophobia in K-12 Art Curriculum.
Reviewed and sponsored by United States Society for Education through Art (USSEA).
Advance curriculum that counters Islamophobia by interrogating misinformation, biased propaganda, and hate speech, through studio practices that engage traditional and contemporary practices related to Islamic art forms.
--Counter the negative narratives about immigrant and refugee communities through photo-text stories. Reviewed and sponsored by Caucus of Social Theory in Art Education (CSTAE). School-wide curriculum combats anti-immigrant oppression through student research, photography and storytelling. Cultivate positive counter narratives by amplifying student stories and photography led by English language learners.
-- Panelist: Spirituality: Why it matters for art education.
Reviewed and sponsored by the Caucus on the Spiritual in Art Education.
Panelists discuss definitions, challenges, and practical and theoretical approaches for addressing spirituality within art education settings and artistic practices.
At AERA in San Francisco I am presenting my paper through Division A: Administration/Division - Section 1: Leadership. My paper is titled: “Power of Immigration Stories, Possibilities of Immigration Rights through Innovative School Leadership Practices,” in which I address these research questions from a case study of collaborative work with teachers and superintendent when I was a school principal:
· How can school leadership facilitate teachers’ engagement of transformative curriculum?
· How can school leadership facilitate self-determination of families?
I presented a talk at The Yoga Center Amherst on September 13 through photos, story-telling and poetry about intersections of the sacred with the secular; the spiritual with the physical; and the inner dialogue of the internal camino with the outer landscape of the external camino.

I gave a TEDx Talk at TEDxOhioStateUniversity.
I titled the talk: "Art Education as Civil Right." The video is available for viewing online.
