This article presents three different perspectives on achieving equitable access to arts education for diverse groups. Although these views grow out of different contexts, they share some key components:
  • Open conversations about the difficult issues of race, ethnicity, and class, both within an organization and with communities it serves.
  • Emphasis on long-term community engagement and collaboration, including partnerships with organizations and institutions outside the arts.
  • Honoring the cultural knowledge, experience, and perspective of all those being served.
