Image for National Arts in Education Week Starts Sept. 11

Aug 30, 2016

This year’s National Arts in Education Week—designated by congress through House Resolution 275—will be happening September 11-17. The resolution “calls on governors, mayors, and other elected officials from across the United States to issue proclamations to raise awareness of the value and importance of arts in education.” It is also an opportunity for the national arts education community—including students, teachers, administrators, parents, and community members—to voice their support and organize to bolster arts learning opportunities.

According to Americans for the Arts, “every year, communities, schools, arts centers, and education programs host celebrations in their communities across the country. Whether a performance, exhibit, class or open house, local celebrations are the best way to bring attention to the cause of arts education.”

  • Be sure to find or share celebrations for the week of September 11 – 17, 2016 with others on ArtsMeet National Event Calendar.
  • Download and use the logo. The brand of National Arts in Education Week is free and shared for all to use. Be sure to place this logo on any event posters, social media, websites or public awareness campaigns you promote.
