The Committee, now in its 5th year of existence, includes members representing all boroughs, disciplines and grade levels. Teachers are an invaluable resource for us in ensuring that the Museum of Arts and Design serves our city’s school children and educators in the most optimum ways possible. We count on our Teacher Advisory Committee to be our link to NYC’s schools and classrooms, giving us guidance as to the most effective programming and ask that our TAC members serve as liaisons and advocates for the innovative arts education opportunities MAD provides.
- Participate in informal roundtable discussions with a select group of our staff and your fellow colleagues. Develop a forum to share best practices, discuss challenges, problem-solve, and give feedback on a variety of topics including exhibition, curriculum and program development and promotional materials.
- Help MAD’s school-based education programs best complement the Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts, meet benchmark requirements in the arts for grades K-12 and maintain open and regular communication between the Museum and New York City area schools.
- Receive compensation for your contribution through membership benefits, invitations to openings and special events, free passes to area museums and other cultural institutions as well as a stipend for the year.
- Meet quarterly for two hours at the Museum.
