Back to the Future of Arts Education

We're engaging kids through virtual and distance learning right now, while we're also looking forward to getting back to the classroom with in-person, arts-integrated learning in the future.

On Thursday, October 8th at 6pm, we are showcasing the innovation and creativity of our teaching artists and sharing some of the lessons we've learned on providing equity and arts access to students learning from home. 

Come join us for this live, fundraising event from the comfort of your own home and experience a virtual Latin Dance class with Teaching Artist Kirah Caminos, among other interactive performances and interviews with local artists and famous creators.

All proceeds benefit arts-integrated learning for thousands of students enrolled in schools throughout the Bay Area.
