This past May I finished facilitating the pilot of my new collaboration with the Bartol Foundation, Trauma-Informed Practice for Arts Education Administrators. To learn more you can:
- Check out this interview that I did for Bartol’s blog

This was the last training session I’ll be facilitating until the fall, but the link for the Fall 2020 application for the teaching artist branch of this class will be available in the late summer.
