Building Public Will for Arts Education

At the 2014 Conference for Community Arts Education, keynote speaker Kevin Kirkpatrick gave us an exclusive look at the first phase of a long-term, collaborative initiative to build public will for arts and culture as a recognized, valued, and expected part of everyday life. The initiative is being led by Arts Midwest and Metropolitan Group with leading funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. A full recording of this keynote address is now available to watch online.

Now that the project is moving from the formative research phase into implementation, we checked in with Kevin to find out more about what's been accomplished so far and what he and his colleagues have learned. Read the full interview, appearing in the latest edition of GuildNotes.
