WEBINAR: A Shared Endeavor: Collaborating to Ensure Equitable Access to High Quality Arts Education

« Back

May 13, 2014

Earlier this year, the National Guild, in partnership with 12 other national arts and education organizations, released Arts Education for America's Students: A Shared Endeavor, a joint statement calling on policy-makers and the public to ensure arts education for all students. At its core is the belief that students benefit most from the combined power of community-based arts education providers, and certified public school arts and non-arts educators, who collaborate to provide deeper and expanded arts learning opportunities and curricular connections among the arts and other subjects. Each of these partners can play a distinct role in overcoming some of the long-term structural issues that prevent equitable access to arts education.  

Join us for a lively discussion on May 20 to explore ways of collaborating and leveraging resources to more deeply engage communities and make better use of our existing assets (teaching artists, certified arts and non-arts educators, etc.). Using the statement as our guide, we’ll discuss the complementary roles school and community-based educators can play to create a more favorable arts education environment. We’ll also share information, examples, and ideas on how to overcome some of our existing challenges.
  • How can your organization successfully collaborate with certified public school arts and non-arts educators to ensure equitable access to arts education for all students?
  • How can you empower your parents and families as advocates? 
  • How can you help your elected officials, school board, and other key stakeholders understand the critical importance of the arts to a well-rounded education?
