I am so glad to finally see so many groups including arts INTEGRATION in their residencies. Arts integration (the use of the arts to inform another medium, academic subject or community need) is a concept I have been teaching in schools for over 35 years and have recently written about in my newly published book Teaching Curriculum Through the Arts. It is an idea whose time is ripe and if we are to tackle some of the awesome problems we face, we need to start teaching our children to integrate and thereby to create.

Hi Ronn,

You are so right - arts integration is a concept that has so much potential for helping to improve and support our educational system. And school based residencies offer many (and usually paid) opportunities for artists. Its definitely a win-win situation.
