Arts for All: Education leaders convene to talk arts ed
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 Massachusetts 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.
- Including the arts to STEM education.
- Measuring creativity and innovation across all subjects.
To kick off the joint initiative, we’ll be holding three 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.
