What Bridges are You Building for Arts Education?



Amanda Gorman's poetic speech yesterday left many of us speechless. She offered a glimpse of a hopeful future that focuses on collaboration over competition and reminded us all of the power of young artists. Building the bridges that Gorman wrote about in The Hill We Climb requires action. As we boldly move into 2021, we invite you to join one of the local efforts below to bring together communities of educators, artists/artivists, and advocates to co-create a Bay Area that puts the arts, equity, and young people at the center of our work. Email us if we've somehow missed your Bay Area group!
