conferences, symposia, and the development and dissemination of information resources

We provide young people across the state with opportunities to experience the arts through programs such as workshops, performances, and exhibitions.

Position the Arts:

We work to ensure an effective voice on behalf of arts education before policy-makers and provide strategic input to the State Department of Education, state arts agency, councils, school boards, and educators.
