On October 29, 2018, the National Endowment for the Arts hosted a 90-minute webinar titled “New Research on the Arts & Early Childhood: A Symposium”. The webinar showcased a series of research articles that appeared in a special section of Early Childhood Research Quarterly (ECRQ) (4th Quarter issue, published in 2018). This special section focuses on the nature, value, and the impact of the arts for children in their early years.
Featured speakers of the NEA hosted webinar included authors Brian Kisida (University of Missouri), Eleanor Brown (West Chester University), and Amy Susman-Stillman (University of Minnesota), with guest speakers Rocio Galarza (Sesame Workshop) and Jane Best (Arts Education Partnership). Additional introductory remarks were made by co-guest editors Adam Winsler (George Mason University) and Melissa Menzer (National Endowment for the Arts), as well as by Sunil Iyengar, director of the NEA’s Office of Research & Analysis.
