Be Part of Our Collective Impact!
The Ensuring the Arts for Any Given Child DC Community Arts Team is Collecting Data!
As you may know the DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative was awarded an emerging Collective Impact grant by the National Endowment for the Arts and named the 25th Ensuring the Arts for Any Given Child community through The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. In both cases, we are delighted to serve as backbone support for our community. Read more about Any Given Child DC by viewing our Collective Impact F.A.Q. Sheet !

This is a big deal for arts and humanities education in DC. Collective Impact is not for one organization, it is for the entire DC Community in service to its young people. It's time for you, the arts and humanities education community, to get involved!

Who should participate?

Any organization or individual artist that has education programming for DC youth should fill out this survey and pass it along to their colleagues. It is imperative that we have a current and comprehensive view of arts education programming in the city to ensure that all students will have equitable access to the arts and humanities education resources in their city in the future.

Let's get started!
  • Please fill out one survey per organization.
  • This data is for the current school year, 2017-2018.
  • Enter Data for ONLY DC Public School Students served (and anticipated to serve) through arts education programming.
  • The survey should take no longer than 20 minutes. Prior to the survey, have the following items handy:
    • Organization budget information (including funding breakdowns by source, e.g. government, corporate, foundation, individual, earned revenue...),
    • Education department budget (total budget including salaries/admin),
    • List of schools served by program area,
    • Estimated numbers of students/teachers/administrators served. 
Those who return the survey by January 17 will be entered into a raffle for a pair of tickets! More information coming soon!

Humanities and Out-of-School Time Programming
Through the Any Given Child DC initiative the DC Collaborative is first taking a comprehensive look at the state of arts education in Washington, DC for PreK-12 in-school time programming in DCPS. We will expand to public charter schools and into humanities focused disciplines as well as out-of-school time, early childhood, family and arts for the aging disciplines in the second year (2018-2019 school year) of our work.
This is OUR 20th year!  Please support our work!
