CELEBRATING 10 YEARS OF ARTS EDUCATION PROGRESS!

We’re turning 10, and to celebrate, you are cordially invited to Ingenuity@10: Igniting Equity in Arts Education! See highlights from CPS students’ extraordinary artistic achievements, and hear from world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma, Chicago Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot, CPS Chief Executive Officer Dr. Janice Jackson, and other special guests, about the power and importance of arts education in our public schools.

Join us here on May 18 at 6PM, CT as we celebrate ten years of Ingenuity! This live virtual event will pay tribute to the resilient 1,400 CPS arts teachers and 600 active arts organizations we serve, and ignite equity in arts education for the 340,000 CPS students and 642 schools we collectively impact each year.
