Join the AEMS Educator Council

AEMS is looking for arts educators* committed to racial equity to join our Educator Council. The Council is an advisory group that helps AEMS address systemic issues through arts education by supporting our professional development and advocacy initiatives. As a council member, you’ll be able to share your expertise, learn from others, and expand your professional network. AEMS Educator Council meetings are held virtually every quarter.

*current and former classroom arts teachers, non-arts classroom teachers, and teaching artists
