Feb 12, 2015

On Tuesday, February 24, at 2:00PM ET, Grantmakers in the Arts (GIA) will present Achieving Equity Through Arts Education Policy. The webinar is free for GIA members and $35 for non-members. Click here to register.

The webinar will be presented by Alex Nock, executive vice president of Penn Hill Group, and moderated by Janet Brown, president and CEO of GIA. The full description is included below.

Low income students and students of color continue to lack access to everyday instruction in the arts while in school. This systemic denial of the arts and instruction through the arts translates into children who are ill-prepared for advanced study in high school and are behind in the skills they need to be successful in the workforce and college. Grantmakers in the Arts, through the Arts Education Funders Coalition, has been working with Congress and the Obama Administration on a variety of priorities to bring attention to denial of arts for disadvantaged children through its advocacy work in Federal education law. This session will break down how this work on some of the largest Federal investments in K12 and preschool will drive better equity in arts education for low income students and students of color.
