Are you wondering what impacts the next U.S. president will have on arts education? Ingenuity is working with federal, state, and local partners to keep abreast of changes, and to continue advocating for the arts in schools. Various education initiatives are in holding patterns as our next president plans to take office at the end of January. Now is the time to plan to attend our Advocacy Institute and learn about the impacts of this new federal administration on issues and areas that impact the arts in education, including the National Endowment for the Arts, the STEAM movement, and the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
Learn how to advocate in Washington D.C. for policies that support arts education across the U.S., and prepare for Arts Advocacy Day in D.C. this spring. SCHOLARSHIPS will be available to 2-to-3 participants who are interested in attending Americans for the Arts’ Advocacy Days on March 20 and 21, 2017.
In addition, we will focus on how to advocate for state and local policies in this time of change, including the state’s ESSA plan and the state and local school district’s budgets. Learn how to advocate for the arts in schools using Ingenuity’s latest State of the Arts in CPS progress report. Attend the Advocacy Institute and join the growing number of voices speaking out about the importance of the arts in schools.
This Institute is meant to prepare participants to attend an advocacy day, and to conduct advocacy efforts at any level of government with a focus on the federal government.
