Lollapalooza is helping us close the arts ed gap
Lollapalooza has partnered with Ingenuity to create the Lollapalooza Arts Education Fund!
Their $2.2 million commitment will be distributed through our Creative Schools Fund grant program to deliver quality arts education to 100,000+ students in Chicago Public Schools. Each year, schools rated ‘Developing’ and ‘Emerging’ in the arts will be able to apply for partnerships to expand the arts in their school. Through arts residencies, field trips, and professional learning for teachers, Lollapalooza Arts Education Fund will help bring the city’s rich arts and cultural resources into its public schools.
Since 2012, the Creative Schools Fund has supported teacher-designed and led arts partnerships within CPS schools. These programs often feature collaborations with community arts organizations and teaching artists, bringing the rich cultural resources of Chicago into its classrooms. Take a look the programs the Fund has supported over the past 8 years!
