Austin Creative Learning Initiative — Arts Partner Convenings (2022-23)

Calling all Austin arts partners!

Thank you for being part of the Austin's Creative Learning Initiative, a collective-impact partnership among the Austin Independent School District, the City of Austin, MINDPOP, and more than 200 community arts organizations. Together, we are spearheading system-wide changes to bring the transformative power of the arts to our students everywhere they are learning.

Join us for monthly Arts Partner Convenings where we come together as a community to learn from and support each other in our collective work to help more than 90 Austin ISD schools accelerate learning and foster community by ensuring all students benefit from:

  • Creative Teaching, rigorous and student-driven instructional strategies drawn from the arts that educators use across all subjects,
  • Equitable access to visual and performing arts for a well-rounded education, and
  • Interactive experiences with our city’s arts partners and cultural communities to close opportunity gaps.
