Attend an Arts Empower event and invite others to join you.


Identify the leaders in your school and community and let them know why arts education is important to you. Does your school district have a strategic arts education plan?  If not, encourage them to learn more here.  If so, learn more about how you can support the action steps in the plan.
Identify the partners supporting arts education in your school district and share the success stories.  Partners can include arts councils, local arts agencies, colleges and universities, PTA and parent organizations, businesses, community and education foundations, arts organizations and alliances, elected officials and planning commissions.


A well-rounded education includes the arts, which empower students to become the best versions of themselves.  We know arts education prepares students to be global citizens who are ready for the future, including college and career.
