In Harmony: Building and Sustaining Community Partnerships
Friday, February 5

What makes for a deep and equitable community partnership? What are some approaches that can help navigate challenges that arise as partnerships change over time?
In this interactive workshop, Associate Professor of Music Brian Kaufman will share his experience developing a partnership with the Baltimore Symphony’s OrchKids program over the last 7 years. Kaufman will share best practices for collaborating with community partners in the arts (and beyond) as well as tips for adjusting to virtual settings. Participants will work collaboratively to develop their own ideas for existing or future community collaborations.
Participants will learn to:
Evaluate different approaches to building and sustaining community partnerships
Navigate challenges that emerge as partnerships change and develop
Engage ethical issues that arise for teachers, learners, and partners
