Multicultural education is an educational philosophy that focuses on recognizing diversity and uniqueness and the importance of incorporating techniques and materials that make the classroom a more aware and welcoming learning environment.  During this 5-day event, participants will use the arts as a venue through which to recognize and understand our own culture first and throughout the week consider and apply ways that we can transform classrooms in positive ways.

Each day will start with a multicultural education based plenary session and be followed by arts sessions that will reinforce concepts.  There will also be cultural sessions featuring local Bethel culture representatives.

Plan on arriving on Sunday as there will be a welcome dinner on Sunday, 29th.

Intended Audience:  Any educators
