THE ARTS CONNECT FUND

2019-2020 ARTS CONNECT FUND

The Arts Connect Fund supports the creation of an arts ecosystem where schools engage with arts organizations to facilitate programming including professional development for teachers, customized student art experiences and arts integrated curriculum. Specifically, the fund supports in-school residencies, performances on campus, field lessons/trips and professional development for teachers with a focus on arts education, arts exposure or arts integration. The Arts Connect Fund is focused on:

 

  1. Expanding access to arts instruction for students in HISD to close the gap in arts equity

  2. Connecting schools and arts partners to build sustainable relationships

  3. Increasing the time and resources dedicated to the arts during the school day

  4. Building capacity of schools and arts partners to provide arts instruction

  5. Increasing learning and understanding of arts education across multiple disciplines

  6. Demonstrating that the city of Houston is committed to inspiring bright minds through the arts
