Yosi Sergant has dedicated his career to engaging with the principle belief that, it is “through the lens of culture that we understand the world around us, and we can either shape that culture or allow it to shape us.” Sergant is considered by many one of the premier voices and most prolific producers of strategic cultural organizing and has been invited to speak at and consult with some of the most important foundations, universities, companies and think tanks worldwide.

Yosi has an extensive cross sector career with deep understanding of communications, public relations, brand management, marketing, community organizing and business development.

During the 2008 Presidential campaign, Sergant engaged artists in a vast viral movement, supporting then candidate Senator Barack Obama, the most prominent of which is the now ubiquitous “HOPE poster” he commissioned and ran with artist Shepard Fairey. Sergant, commissioned and supported thousands of creative projects during the campaign with the intention of decentralizing endorsement to include people who normally don’t participate in the election process.

Following the election, Sergant served in the White House Office of Public Engagement before accepting an appointment as the Director of Communications for the National Endowment for the Arts.

In 2010, Sergant launched TaskForce, the premiere pro-social cultural organizing agency that engages leaders of the creative community in strategic, high-impact initiatives designed to raise awareness and build momentum for organizations tackling our world’s most pressing challenges.

Quote from Yosi:

 

“California has always been a beacon for dreamers, a home for creative industries and a state that invests in the vibrant futures of all its residents. TaskForce is thrilled to work with Create CA to ensure that legacy continues through a deep and meaningful investment in modern community organizing and creative communication strategies. The campaign will coalesce the various stakeholder organizations, industries and individuals that understand the role a quality arts education plays in shaping our state’s future.”

Rural Arts Education Think Tank @ California Department of Education
Dec 6 @ 9:30 am – 12:30 pm

In an effort to expand arts learning access in rural communities statewide, we hope to gather educators, arts leaders, and community members from cross California to join in a discussion to further understand both the challenges and opportunities that exist in rural communities across the state.

What will we do in the Think Tank?

Explore how data can inform level of access in our rural
communities;

Hear about current research and implications for our field;

Learn about how some rural communities are developing
innovative practices to increase arts learning opportunities for pre-K through 12 students;

Share strategies to build support for arts learning both in discrete and integrated learning;

Engage in a public will campaign that is taking place in California; and

Collaborate with other educational leaders from across California.

Your Voice is Important

We hope that you will participate and share your insights and understandings as we explore together how to deepen and expand arts education for our students. How can we work together to make change?

Questions? Contact Jessie Kroll-Yoas at jyoas@ccsesa.org

Lunch is included.

“A review of the literature reveals several barriers to increasing access to arts education in rural areas,  including  lack of economic opportunity,  geographic distance, recruitment and retention of  teachers and administrators, lack of funding for arts education, policies that do not support the arts, limited collection and analysis of data, and lack of representation on creative economy initiatives.”

– Dr. Lisa Donovan, researcher, professor, and author (Leveraging Change, Increasing Access to Arts Education in Rural Communities)
