Chicago's New Arts Education Plan: A Collective Impact Case Study
Friday | 4:00 PM - 5:15 PM
Topics covered: Collaboration / Partnership, Case Study
The Chicago Public Schools recently launched a district-wide Arts Education Plan—part of Chicago’s first cultural plan in 25 years—to ensure that all Chicago Public Schools students, from the day they start until the day they graduate, will receive a rich arts education at every grade level. The plan was developed through a public/private partnership with input from a wide range of stakeholders, including nonprofit arts education providers. Its execution will impact virtually every arts and cultural organization in the city. In this “behind-the-scenes tour” we’ll hear from three key agencies responsible for the plan: the Chicago Public Schools, Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, and Ingenuity. As similar collective-impact efforts unfold across the country, it’s important for arts education providers to understand their dynamics, potential, and potential pitfalls. Join key leaders from Chicago for a fascinating case study of how such an effort is moving from design to implementation in the nation’s third largest city.
