In April 2018 the Peabody Institute hosted the 11th national conference of the Consortium for the Liberal Education of Artists (CLEA), entitled:
Challenging Artists in Challenging Times: What’s Necessary and Sufficient?
Educators from arts schools across the country gathered from April 5th – 7th to address ongoing work augmenting the learning experience of the young artists we teach. Themes discussed included innovation in first year courses, project-based learning, writing instruction and writing support, advocacy and institutional buy-in for the liberal arts, ELL and the challenge of integrating international populations.
