Envisioning Arts Education in Vermont

Join the Conversation

All Vermont students should have the opportunity to learn in, about, and through the arts. How can we ensure that happens?

The Vermont Arts Council wants you to participate in a conversation about the future of arts education in Vermont. Share you concerns, hopes, and ideas at a series of community forums we are hosting throughout the state this fall and winter.

This conversation was initiated on September 11, 2014 at the Vermont College of Fine Arts. 120 leaders in the arts, education, and business communities came together with the goal of identifying a series of priorities and strategies to ensure that Vermont students have the opportunity to develop their creative abilities and critical thinking. Ellen Lovell-McCulloch delivered an inspiring and informative keynote address, “Eloquent Evidence.”
