Arts for All

All Massachusetts youth deserve the chance to discover their individual passion and creative talents. It can literally be a life-changing experience. 

MASSCreative and Arts|Learning have partnered with MA Cultural Council and Boston Public Schools to advocate for quality arts education and youth arts programs for each student in Massachusetts. Supported in part by Americans for the Arts’ State Policy Pilot Program (SP3), the initiative aims to establish arts education as integral to every school district’s curriculum by:

  • Including one year of arts education in high school as a university admissions requirement. Read the official proposal here.
  • Including the arts to STEM education.
  • Measuring creativity and innovation across all subjects.

To kick off the joint initiative, we’ll be holding 3 regional meetings in Boston, Worcester, and Springfield. These meetings aim to gather feedback on the Arts for All Action Plan from key stakeholders in the art education community; including educators, parents, business leaders, artists, and cultural and arts organizations, and to provide clear next steps on how to gather public support for the initiative.

Please join us for discussion and action steps on how we can best advocate for quality arts education and youth arts programs for each student in Massachusetts.
