Arts Ed Collaborative has spent the past eight months in the planning phase of a large collective impact initiative. We were honored to convene three design meetings with four school systems (Hampton Township SD, Propel Schools, South Fayette SD, and Sto-Rox SD) and eight arts organizations/teaching artists (1Hood Media, Assemble, Bricolage, Carnegie Museum of Art, Center of Life, Pittsburgh Festival Opera, The Learning Instigator, and The Legacy Arts Project). Our shared goal was to increase the quantity, diversity, and connectivity of arts learning opportunities for youth in Southwestern PA.

We have tons of participant feedback and are trying to sift through a myriad of possible next steps. We have come to the realization as a team that we would benefit from some facilitation support to help us define collective impact programmatically (e.g., what portion(s) of our project portfolio are part of collective impact) and draft an action plan for 2020. So:

  • Are you passionate about arts education?
  • Is action planning facilitation with a deep DEAI/culturally responsive focus in your wheelhouse?
  • Are you available to facilitate on February 27 and 28 from 9am–4:30pm?

If you answered yes the the questions above, please send your résumé to to express your interest. We look forward to hearing from you!
