Composed entirely of young people from throughout the state, ages 15-18, the JAEC Youth Advisory Board is guiding Arts Commission and Department of Education staff in a collaborative effort to provide Arizona educators, administrators, and teaching artists an opportunity to explore the potential of student-centered learning and develop culturally responsive curriculum.
According to Arizonans Speak Out About the Arts in 2018, a new report on a recent national poll, Arizonans exceed the national average in how positively they view the value of arts and arts education, as well as the contributions the arts make to the workplace, tourism, and livability of their communities.
SMU DataArts will be in Arizona in November 2018 offering workshops on how nonprofit arts organizations can use data to support their missions, communicate their value, and ensure their financial health. Workshops will be offered in Flagstaff, Phoenix, and Tucson.
