Arts Now Humboldt Summit Overview

This region-wide conference will offer strategies and resources for bringing creative education to rural school districts. School leaders, teachers and community partners in Northern Humboldt Union High School District will share how they have increased opportunities for creative learning through collaboration, partnerships within Humboldt’s creative economy and programs that engage local artists and arts organizations in classrooms. 

According to findings from the California Arts Ed Data Project, students in rural areas are less likely to participate in the arts than their peers in other locales. In addition, students in schools that are eligible for Title I funding and or with high percentages of free and reduced lunch also have fewer opportunities to participate in arts education. 

This conference is part of the Alliance’s Arts Now California Campaign, which spotlights opportunities for schools, districts and counties around the state to establish and advance creative education. Learn about resources like the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), Title I and Arts Plans, as well as other unique regional and statewide funding and educational programs. 

The California Alliance for Arts Education and our partners in the ARTS NOW CALIFORNIA Campaign are working to establish the expectation that every California school district provide their students with a high quality, comprehensive education that includes a robust arts program, complete with instruction by credentialed arts teachers as well as arts integration strategies being implemented across the curriculum. Our campaign will celebrate districts taking a leadership role in prioritizing arts education and will encourage other districts to prioritize arts education.
