Data Snapshot: Arts Partnerships - Before and After the Pandemic explores the challenges that were faced by arts partners during the COVID-19 pandemic school years. It details what the common characteristics were among arts organizations that had school partners in 2018-19 but no longer in 2020-21, while also exploring such data as whether partners served fewer or more schools, what artistic disciplines they provided, and how we can use this data to build back partnership numbers.
Doing social good is about to get better
We are pleased to share the 2019-20 State of the Arts Report (SOTA). This eighth annual edition presents data that tracks student access to arts education in Chicago Public Schools (CPS) while also identifying areas for improvement and opportunities for growth. Read the report now.
We know many partners have questions about the return to in-school programs. We've worked with the CPS Department of Arts Ed to create this living document that responds to partner-submitted questions!
