Meeting Topics? How to get the arts directly to the students in our communities.
Where are we now? Share key takeaways We are documenting what is being done, i.e. data, visual, etc. We are also starting to work on pre-engaging students.
Where should we go, and why? Share key takeaways We need to continue to document and assess the students with the arts so that we can "tell the story." We also need to find new ways to engage students.
How Should we get there? Share key takeaways Find ways to connect with other arts organizations, working artists and community members to discuss possible options of where to head.
Next Steps? Communicate this to government officials, foundations, school administrators, and parents.
