2016-17 Next Generation & STEAM Artist Residencies
Brevard Cultural Alliance invites Brevard public schools to apply by the October 7th deadline to host a Next Generation Artist Residency or STEAM Artist Residency.
These residencies are presented in partnership with Brevard Schools Foundation and with funding through the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs, Department of State. We anticipate offering up to 12 residencies in a variety of artistic disciplines with highly qualified, compelling artists.
Residencies enhance existing curriculum as well as complement and enrich teachers’ instructional plans, particularly in disciplines where teachers require assistance, thereby providing professional development for participating educators. BCA’s Next Generation Artist Residencies seeks to enhance not only participants’ artistic skills but overall academic performance, fostering capacities for creativity and innovation, and equipping students with transferable life skills.
BCA’s artist residencies are not exclusively oriented to activity teachers (visual arts, music, dance, etc.). Any educator interested in exploring the possibilities of arts integration and its potential to add innovation and novelty to instruction.
STEAM artist residencies are a subset of BCA’s Next Generation Artist Residencies program. These residencies focus on integrating the arts in a cross-curricular fashion to teach STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) in new and creative ways.
