This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Professor Patty Bode talks about how education involves learning and teaching, and learning is what makes us fully human. Art, she argues, is thus a big aspect of being fully human.
Dr. Patty Bode asserts art education as a civil and human right through her teaching, research, service, art making and activism. With a focus on democratization of the arts, Her work reinvigorates the arts in urban schools, juvenile justice facilities, neighborhood community settings, and engages cultural institutions to re-imagine their role in art education.
Dr. Bode teaching prepares art educators to pedagogy through multicultural education and innovative classroom practice by highlighting the role of radical thought in the transformation of schools and society. She has published and lectured on critical art pedagogy and re-theorizing curriculum to redefine art education. Dr. Bode is the recipient of several grants and awards including the National Multicultural Educator Award, 2005 and National Art Education Foundation grant, 2011-2012.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
