Our approach combines empirical research, a strong theoretical base and decades of practical experience. Using the tools of collective impact, MINDPOP brings equity and access to quality arts education to schools and communities, and builds the instructional skills of teachers to lead creative classrooms.
Our solutions support individual teachers, campus leaders and district administrators, as well as artists and communities.
By working with schools, school systems, arts partners, philanthropists and the community, the collective group can combine resources to make the arts and creative learning more accessible to all young people.
By addressing how we instruct students both in and out of school, we can amplify the benefits of creative teaching.
An effective Creative Learning Initiative includes equitable access to arts learning in all art forms at all levels. It supports general classroom teachers using creative teaching strategies across the curriculum. It also meaningfully integrates community arts partners into schools and assures students and their families have access to arts experiences in their neighborhoods and across the community.
