A quality arts education equips students with the skills they need to succeed in school, career and life. This is especially important in Los Angeles County, where one in eight jobs is generated by the creative industries. Yet, not all 1.5 million students attending public schools in LA County have access to high quality arts education. Grantmakers have an important role to play in addressing this critical issue. This is why the public-private Arts Education Collective Funders Council partners with Southern California Grantmakers to host semi-annual convenings on arts education that dive into pressing issues, provide opportunities to connect with other funders and explore ways to provide all students a quality education that embraces the arts.

On January 30, a panel representing school districts, philanthropy and other County agencies will share insights on progress and upcoming opportunities emerging from collective efforts to improve public education and promote positive youth development through the arts.
