KUOW’s “Weekday” show aired a discussion today on arts education in Seattle schools. Listen to the show here.
Leading the discussion are Carri Campbell, visual and performing arts manager of Seattle Public Schools; Sandra Jackson–Dumont, chair of the Arts Education Committee of the Seattle Arts Commission and deputy director for education and public programs and adjunct curator at the Seattle Art Museum; and Elizabeth Whitford, executive director of Arts Corps. They discuss the current state of arts education in Seattle schools, efforts to give students equal access to arts education, and the value of arts in learning.
Hear about our office’s Arts Education Partnership with Seattle Public Schools, the $1 million grant that The Wallace Foundation gave to Seattle Public Schools for arts education planning, and what SAM, Arts Corps and other organizations are doing to bring arts to local youth.
