We award mini-grants to teachers who are “shopping” for creative opportunities for their students. ArtsEdConnect is a web-enabled “marketplace” for Silicon Valley teachers to access local arts education opportunities through a “qualitative matchmaking process.”
We serve K-12 private and public school teachers and their students across Silicon Valley and the artists and organizations that we are “match making.”
Research concludes that engagement in arts and creativity sparks a passion for learning, fuels imagination, and builds relevant skills. ArtsEdConnect comes at a time when public funding for arts education is trending downward and helps to bridge that “opportunity gap” by increasing access to arts education and funding for teachers and their students.
OUR MISSION: To ignite investment and engagement in arts and creativity in Silicon Valley.
OUR FOCUS: Our resources are focused on participatory arts, cultural heritage, children’s creativity, placemaking, and innovative ideas, partnerships and art forms.
WHAT ARE WE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH?
