So grateful to have been chosen as a 2016 recipient of the Astor International Travel Fellowship. Along with other amazing Art Educators, we traveled to Sydney and Melbourne, Australia under the leadership of Dr. Philip Taylor, Associate Professor of Educational Theatre, to study “Arts Education Down Under” and shared our findings when we returned.

The program rotates locations among NYU’s global academic centers and campuses and program themes range from STEM education to special education, literacy, art and music education, and bilingual education.
