Marginalized no more

Incite / Insight;Aug2010, Vol. 2 Issue 3, p14
An essay is presented on the struggle of those in arts education for the young to persuade others of the importance of their work. It cites the Theatre for Youth Program whose faculty has the expertise and professional experience in theatrical areas but are treated as second class citizen in an average university season. The internalized oppression of certain groups on the power of another like the unquestioned reverence for high theatre artists. It suggests the need for arts educators to realize that they can integrate and learn from each other.
