The Creative Advantage was created to ensure that all students in all Seattle Public Schools (SPS) have opportunities to learn through the arts, helping them achieve success in school and in life. In SPS high schools, this takes the form of connecting students with career opportunities in creative industries.
As we work to develop and refine career-connected media arts courses for our high school students, we want to ensure that our work aligns with what students want and need. So, we asked them.
What we discovered was that many students see the arts as an area they want to foster, regardless of the career path they intend to pursue. We’re excited to share this new report highlighting what we heard from students, as well as research-backed best practices and profiles from interviews with media arts professionals.
