From Matchmaking to Evaluation: Steps to a Successful Arts and Education Partnership

Published: 2019-05-20

The Guild has a fundamental, long-term commitment to supporting strong partnership between community arts educators and the K-12 learning environment. Between 2005 and 2014, our Partners in Arts Education (PIAE) program provided grants, training, and technical assistance partnership practice across the field. Since 2014, we have continued to provide in-depth arts in education learning through online programs, Conference institutes, and Guild Network activity.

In that vein, at the 2018 Conference, Mario Rossero, senior vice president of education at the Kennedy Center, presented a full-day workshop on effective K-12 partnership. In this interview, we follow-up with Mario to discuss the fundamental steps to building a thriving partnership.
