Celebrate National Arts in Education Week, September 11-17

Posted on: September 8, 2016

Next week is National Arts in Education Week. Here are some ways for orchestras and their supporters to get involved:

Your Orchestra: Is there a great arts education program your orchestra is involved with in schools or in partnership with schools? Between September 11 and 17, post your stories, videos, and photos on social media with the hashtags #artsed and #ArtsEdWeek. It’s a great way to remind your communities that your orchestra is involved with arts education. And if you tag the League of American Orchestras (@OrchLeague on Twitter), we’ll re-post and re-Tweet selected stories throughout the week.

You, Your Friends, and Your Orchestra Family: Invite people from all walks of life to participate. Maybe an early arts education experience led to or connects with what you do professionally today, or it has become a tradition you share with family and friends. Post your arts-ed story using #artsed #ArtsEdWeek and help us show that the reach of arts education is as great as the need for it.

Looking for more resources? The League maintains a host of Music Education information online, including talking points, advocacy tools, and the latest news on how new education laws will impact schools and students.
