Sacramento Promise Zone
Highlight #016, January 2017
January 2017 by Katie Smet, Sustainably Built Communities VISTA and Patricia Colon, Education Action Team VISTA
In early November, the Education Action Team and Art Team partners came together to discuss challenges to incorporate art programs into schools. As a result, the Sacramento Promise Zone reached out to the National Endowment for the Arts and the Department of Education to conduct a webinar focused on best practices to engage and integrate the arts in education. In addition, the webinar will touch upon possible funding opportunities to support these efforts. This webinar is an important opportunity for local partners to hear from federal partners about other art education models across the country. This is also an opportunity to build support and share information among local partners in the Promise Zone. Please subscribe to the Sacramento Promise Zone’s Community and Partner Update mailing list for more details once the webinar date is released.
