I have been inspired and encouraged by the resources, programs and ideas that are starting to emerge as part of this group. When we're out there advocating for something that we know in our hearts is valuable, especially when we're dealing with funding organizations and district level officialdom, its easy to get caught up in statistics, results and the like. I wondered if as many of you as possible could share one story about one student, one lesson or one project that you call to mind around the arts and arts education. It doesn't have to be long...just true! So gather around, grab a glass of your favourite refreshment and tell us a story! stephen
