The Arizona Commission on the Arts is partnering with Arizona the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) to engage Arizona communities in conversations about arts education in Arizona schools during a statewide tour this Winter. Our first stop: Flagstaff on November 29, 2017.

These community conversations are free and open to the public. We particularly encourage students, teachers, teaching artists, community arts workers, administrators, parents, and policymakers to attend. We want to hear your insights, questions, and concerns and learn about the challenges and opportunities you see for arts education in your community’s schools. Data collected through these community conversations will be reviewed by the Arts Advisory & Action Committee’s leadership team and communicated to education and civic leaders throughout the state.
