2015 Learning Exchange Series Ranking Form

2015 Learning Exchange Series Ranking Form

Purpose: The purpose of the 2015 Learning Exchange Series curators’ meeting is to offer an opportunity for ROOTS members and learning exchange idea contributors to give feedback on proposals submitted over the past two months.


  1. Identify connections and parallels between learning exchange ideas and work taking place across the region.
  2. We will select 4 ideas or idea groups that will be further developed by the ROOTS staff and individual team members who submitted the proposal.
  3. Learn further needs of each learning exchange.
  4. Understand how ROOTS and fellow members can support learning exchanges not selected in the final 4 ideas to move forward during 2015 series.

ROOTS opened the forum for members to submit ideas so they have been compiled from phone calls, e-mails, and webforms. When ranking, please consider the merit of the idea and not the writing of the proposal. ROOTS would like ideas that are in line with the call themes, and that reflect the work taking place in the south.


Education, Immigration and the Arts
Learning Exchanges that investigate the intersection of two or more of the following: education, the arts, immigration and migration.

Arts and Organizing
Learning Exchanges that delve into the idea of arts and culture as central to movement and coalition building, mobilizing, organizing, and shifting culture.

Holding History and Heritage Using the Arts
Learning Exchanges that highlight how the arts are being used as a tool to hold and share history and heritage, people, places, language, traditions and customs.
