Center for Artistry and Scholarship

The Center for Artistry and Scholarship (CAS) develops and supports innovative and tenacious leaders in education to build more equitable, collaborative and creative communities.

The Center for Artistry and Scholarship is a non-profit organization affiliated with the Conservatory Lab Charter School in Boston’s Dorchester neighborhood. CAS works in three areas: promoting and disseminating the work of the Conservatory Lab Charter School, supporting innovative school leadership, and celebrating arts-immersed education.

On Saturday, October 19, 2019, Next Wave will share educator- and community-developed innovations that foster democratic practices and creative approaches to racial and social justice in education. Check out our amazing program!

Next Wave will feature engagement with artists such as Esperanza Spalding. Participants will emerge with a deeper understanding of the role of artistry and creativity as essential elements of learning and human development, and with an increased capacity to be the leaders we need for the schools our young people deserve.
