Washington is rich in arts and culture, but budget constraints often prevent the city's schools from taking advantage of its resources. So the DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative works collectively with its 105 cultural partners to have a real impact on the lives of DC students by helping their schools gain access to our vibrant arts world. Offering arts and humanities education workshops for teachers, teaching artists, principals, and others, the Collaborative also makes registration, tickets, and transportation easy. This year, the Arts for Every Student program will reach nearly 50,000 students from 120 schools through free in-school performances and workshops, and field trips to cultural events. Since its founding in 1998, over 600,000 children have benefitted from the Collaborative’s programs, and demand continues to grow. After all, visiting the Kennedy Center for the first time, making a trip to the Washington Ballet or Shakespeare Theatre, having a professional artist come right to your classroom – for many children these are unforgettable experiences. You can keep the arts alive – for every student.
