Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education, Mass Cultural Council, Arts|Learning, and Lesley University are hosting the Leadership in Arts Integration Institute on March 13-14, 2020, in Cambridge, MA. The Institute will bring leaders in arts integration from around Massachusetts to present models for designing and implementing arts integration programs in PreK-12 schools. Keynote presenters at the Institute will include state and national leaders in the arts and education, including Jamie Kasper, the newly appointed Director of the Arts Education Partnership of the Education Commission of the States.
In order to provide a variety of models of leadership in arts integration, we are seeking proposals from arts specialists, classroom teachers, school leaders, artists, and other professionals who have engaged in designing arts integration programs in schools.
The Arts for All Coalition is drawing attention to the role arts can play in the Student Opportunity Act. This new state law offers new funding opportunities to improve education, especially in Gateway Cities across the Commonwealth.
This fiscal year Mass Cultural Council is investing $1.15 million into classrooms across the Commonwealth with 283 grants to support creative learning through the arts, humanities, and sciences for Massachusetts’ students.
From Artist News to Creative Youth, Community Initiative, and Power of Culture, our email lists are a great way to keep up with the work of Mass Cultural Council and its partners across the Commonwealth.
