The 2005 Artstor Museum Education Program seeks proposals from small, medium and large museum education departments who wish to explore the integration of ARTstor into an already existing education program or design a new project that makes use of ARTstor with museum audiences, museum staff, or volunteers.

Artstor staff will select promising proposals, and access to Artstor will be provided at no charge to the museum and audiences identified in selected projects or programs from January 17 to June 30, 2005. Additional benefits for museums selected to participate in the program are support from Artstor staff for project development, documentation and evaluation, and the publication of a final report encompassing all the participants in the 2005 Artstor Museum Education Program to further the education field’s understanding about teaching with digital images.

On November 15 at 11:30 a.m. CST and November 22, 2004 at 1:00 PM CST an informational session and demonstration of Artstor will be held online in Museum-Ed Office at LearningTimes.org. LearningTimes.org is an open community that allows demonstrations and discussions to take place in one environment for people at many different locations. These sessions are free, and open to all interested museum educators. Advance registration is required, for more information email krisw@museum-ed.org.

All proposals are due January 10, 2005.
