Community arts education leaders can contribute directly to the adoption of policy that will increase access to arts learning for all. In this session, you'll hear from leaders, from within the arts field and beyond, who have successfully achieved social change in their communities through collaborative action, cross-sector partnerships, the adaptation of new business practices, and other strategies. Learn how nonprofit organizations, school districts, community development coalitions, and local government can play a key role in moving legislation into action to ensure that all people, regardless of race or socio-economic status, receive the same access to arts learning opportunities.
