Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts: Contemporary Connections

Contemporary Connections is a school-based program in which Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts pairs a professional artist with a classroom teacher. This team, together with a DCCA representative, designs a curriculum in which the arts are integrated into core curriculum subjects. The main goal of Contemporary Connections is for students to understand the intellectual and cultural heritage of the arts and to see how this relates to contemporary society, their studies, and their lives. This program also develops teachers’ skills that enable them to use arts integration as a powerful teaching tool in core curriculum subjects is also a key aspect of the program.

If you are an artist and interested in participating in this program, please send work samples along with a resume that indicates teaching experience to:

Holly Bennett, Curator of Education
Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts
200 South Madison Street
Wilmington, DE 19801

Applications are accepted on a year-round basis.
