After an influential and inspiring 6 year run- the “final” Marwen Teaching Artist Fellows meeting was held in 2014.
Since 2009 the impressive team of Marwen teaching artist consultants- called the Fellows- has rotated to include Regin Igloria, Justin Schmitz, Ann Worthing, Joe Meredith, Kelly Kaminski, Melissa Porter, Meredith Zielke, Barlow, Angee Lennard, Jesse Avina, Jeremy Bolen, Sophia Nahli Allison and Marta Garcia! Thank you all for your thoughtful service, leadership, and inspiration!
Over the years the Fellows’ work has included: creating the old Marwen WIKI, writing discipline specific guidelines, planning and facilitating the teaching artist retreats and pre/post term meetings, consulting on all things Marwen, helping to compile Marwen teaching artist’s Best Practices, co-creating and authoring Verve.marwen.org, and on and on!
This team of committed and valued Marwen consultants is not disappearing! We are modifying this program for 2015 and beyond to include many more teaching artists’ and assistant teaching artists’ voices with a slightly modified mission. They will now be called the Teaching Artist Advisory Board. Look forward to their contributions to Verve- coming soon!
