Each year, thanks to the generosity of artist Marion Cilker, San Jose State University and the Santa Clara County Office of Education host two days of inspiration for both pre-service and in-service arts educators. KQED will be there to present a workshop about KQED Art School, and other presenters include SFMOMA, AXIS Dance, and TheaterWorks of Silicon Valley.
Last week, students across the nation discussed whether or not America should intervene in Egypt in our #DoNowEgypt post. We asked: Given Egypt’s continued turmoil and bloodshed, is it the United States’ role to intervene in the crisis?
When the spotlight shifted from Egypt to Syria earlier this year, it was easy enough for us to assume that, in the absence of daily news coverage, that conditions in Egypt had improved. That, unfortunately, is far from the reality of the situation on the ground: Egypt remains a nation mired in deep-seeded violent conflict.
