Event Description:
​Back to School with TEA: The Education Salon

Third Estate Art presents the third salon in its 2019 series, this time all about education.

Each participant will use 10-20 minutes to talk, read, sing, perform, or however they'd like to showcase what they do for you. The event will end with a Q&A.

Featured guests include:
* Annie Gill-Bloyer, Founding Member of RISE49
Annie will discuss how parents and community members in Rogers Park have come together to advocate for neighborhood Chicago Public Schools in the 49th Ward.
* Marlon Lyles, Artist
Marlon will show his illustrations and discuss his personal education, growth and development through the unique art language he created.
* Daniel Staub Weinberg, weinbergsart and Dr. Shmooz the Clown
Dan will share his experiences in clown camp and teach the group some beginner mime movements.
* AK Agunbiade, Comedian
AK will perform a piece about the recent college admissions scandal.
* DeJernet Farder, Trauma Informed Teaching Advocate
DeJernet will educate participants on the current trauma students endure, the ways in which our educational system addresses them, and what we all need to do to support our most vulnerable children.

Third Estate Art NFP is a 501(c)3. We are a group of artists and activists who create public art about social issues. We also partner with city parks to bring art to kids' events and into field houses. We believe in paying artists for their time and work, so every presenter (or their organization) at the salon will receive an honorarium. We set up a pay-what-you-can system for buying tickets, so please consider paying a little extra when you buy yours--your money goes right into recouping our venue costs and paying the presenters.
