Join the Arts Now Bay Area Summit to recognize and share the individual and collective work in support of arts education in the Bay Area! Hear success stories and learn how the arts can serve as a powerful tool for equity in our schools. Attendees will engage in meaningful discussions and workshops, as well as gain access to local and statewide strategies and resources for including the arts in LCFF/LCAPs, district strategic arts plans, and student advocacy.
The Summit will feature a special screening of videos from the 2018 Student Voices Campaign, an annual creative video competition by the California Alliance. Finalist videos will be shown and winning videos will be announced! Other opportunities for students (grades 7-12) at the event will include advocacy workshops and the chance to learn about careers in creative industries. (There’s still time for students to enter the competition – learn more here!)
This event is recommended for school board members, superintendents, district and school leaders, VAPA coordinators, teachers, arts leaders, community partners, students (grades 7-12) and community advocates.
The Arts Now Bay Area Summit is presented by the California Alliance for Arts Education, Alameda County Office of Education, California County Superintendents Educational Services Association, San Francisco Unified School District, Oakland Museum of California, and California State PTA.
