Leadership for a Changing World (LCW) will host a live, online interview with Arnold Aprill, executive director of Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education (CAPE) on April 29, 2005, at 1 p.m. ET. In addition to answering participants’ questions, Aprill will discuss the importance of integrating art into education and why cuts to funding for the arts is hurting America’s children. Aprill, a recent LCW awardee and theater artist who has worked in Chicago’s public schools for 25 years, founded CAPE in 1993. He stresses two urgent needs: “to address the shameful inequities in urban public education” and “to reclaim the arts as a potent force for activating participation democracy.” Check for details and submit a question for Aprill on the LCW Web site.
