Meeting Topics? The future of arts impact on education over the next 10 years – how art will transform education.
Where are we now? Share key takeaways Our ultimate goal is arts for every student every day.

Assessment – how we do this:
map individual county needs
map success stories and set Bay Area-wide standards/create a universal language
find pros and cons of schools with and without arts education
establish economic viability of arts and culture and how arts education fuels that

Where should we go, and why? Share key takeaways Create teams:
Team one – engages legislators, businesses, and other non-arts education stakeholders.
Team two – engages community members ie parents, teachers, school administrators, and other community based organizations

to secure systematic funding and buy-in for arts education programs in all schools.

How Should we get there? Share key takeaways Not entirely sure yet.
