The ARWAE Workshop is:
- by teachers for teachers providing direct art-making application and inspiration for classroom teaching in the region
- an all-volunteer endeavor with the character of each yearly session largely shaped by the hosting school and its unique location
- dependent on participants to provide content. The weekend is structured around a participatory workshop ethos. Attendees participate as instructors and collaborators in art-making and discussions
Held in September or October, the ARWAE Workshop is a departure from a traditional approach for professional development:
- it is not a ‘conference’ in current understanding of what ‘conference’ might imply. There are no ARWAE Workshop staff, there is no budget. It is an independent funded by registration fees.
- It is self-funded by registration fees to cover the majority of costs and relies on the host school to provide any additional facilities, transportation or catering logistics that may be required.
- content stems from the offerings of participants rather than being externally pre-determined
- those choosing to present a workshop do so out of a desire to share with teaching peers; presenters are not paid
- there is no keynote address. Special speakers are not brought in for the event
- there is no outside sponsorship or endorsement underwriting the workshop
- there is no commercial solicitation. Representatives of commercial, scholastic or charitable entities are not invited to attend for the purposes of soliciting business or commerce from attendees or their employers
