Week Four – Sector Focused in the NYCIDY

Arts and Humanities

If you are here it is because you were drawn to Arts and Humanities either by interest or because your careerzone assessment revealed that you have natural skills abilities and talents which would make you good at careers which are related to this sector.

Remember to Connect

As you move through the material and return to the site each time and as you move through your group sessions, remember to always begin with your check-in.

First, return to your CareerZone Landing page and reorient yourself to the Arts and Humanities Sector.

People working in this field engage in literary, cultural, artistic, athletic, and entertainment activities. They interpret and communicate concepts and ideas through writing, painting, dancing, musical expression and a wide variety of other communication techniques.

Using the buttons below go to each of these websites to complete all the steps in your assignment.

Your Assignment:

Exploring Your Sector.

Big Note: Each of these steps is on the Google Document that you downloaded on the Training Site.

Step One: On your Contribution form, summarize the mission of each locale.

Step Two: Explore each of these spaces and work to identify 2 to 4 top priorities for the way that they each bring Arts and Humanities into their community.

Step Three: Using the below questions to guide you, consider what your priorities would be for your NYCIDY:

  • What will Arts and Humanities look like at NYCIDY?
  • Will there be a brick and mortar location like a typical museum or art gallery?
  • What art will be featured? Will there be living exhibitions (for example; moveable art, relocated every month?)
  • Will NYCIDY residents be allowed/encouraged to decorate the city with art?
  • Will the Arts and Humanities activities be free to NYCIDY residents?
  • Will NYCIDY residents be able to take classes in Arts and Humanities?
  • What will these classes be – painting, drawing, dance, photography, sculpture, graphic arts?
  • Will HS students be evaluated for talent in the arts and then given free training in those disciplines?

Step Four: Be prepared to present the following ideas for a sector focused project so that your sector-focused team will together decide which project you will present for the NYCIDY Presentations.

They are:

1. Creating a song/rap about NYCIDY Arts and Humanities

2. Draw/Paint a picture of what Arts and Humanities will look like in NYCIDY

3. Write a story or poem about NYCIDY (it can be completely imaginative and totally made up like a fable)

4.Create a Logo for NYCIDY’s Arts and Humanities Sector

5. A mock web site for your Arts and Humanities Sector
