Join a virtual field trip that can encourage students to study and respond to the arts! Starting June 16, 2015, examples of the positive power of the arts will be on full digital display, courtesy of the 40 Days Digital Arts Festival. This celebration brings together people of all abilities from all over the world through international exchanges of art exhibitions, educational materials, art performances, and professional development materials.
What Is In The 40 Days Festival?
The 40 Days Festival is a repository of materials such as lesson plans, videos, photographs, letters, etc of art and education exchanges. The project is truly diverse:
There are many projects that are school programs that have been exchanged between two countries and have the lesson plans, evaluation materials and samples.
There are projects that are professional art exchanges of music and art in which one country is showcasing the talents of professional artists with disabilities in another country.
There are professional development materials for educators and artists to use that countries have shared with each other and are now accessible to anyone.
There are projects with military ties. One project involves Veterans with PTSD working with refugees on a writing project. Another project involves video and film of individuals’ experiences and memories of war.
There are projects that showcase how different Affiliates run some of our more popular projects such as Young Soloist.
There are projects that are a sharing of culture through the arts.
Be sure to visit the festival website often as a new project will be unveiled daily for the next 40 days.
