The Newport Art Museum in partnership with Rhode Island Teaching Artist Center (RITAC) will host “The Powder Room”, a "6x6" event. This is a fast-paced educational event featuring six teaching artists presenting for six minutes on a given topic. Loosely modeled on the worldwide PechaKucha phenomenon, 6x6 is a great opportunity to meet new people and think about a provocative topic related to the arts, education, and teaching artistry. Inspired by the Newport Art Museum's "Domestic Affairs: Domesticity, Identity, and the Home" exhibition (on exhibit until May 6, 2018), individuals presenting in 6x6: "The Powder Room" will discuss how feminism, empowerment, and female identity connects to their art, teaching practice, and professional careers.
Featured guest speakers:
The Woman Project - Jocelyn Foye
GirlsRock! RI - Rachel Blumberg
