OUR VOICES MATTER
HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGIATE STUDENT ADVOCACY FOR THE ARTS AMIDST COVID-19
We experienced how incredibly powerful the student’s voice is during our Worldwide Day of Gratitude. Now we are preparing to focus and amplify our voices for what could be the most important campaign of our generation: advocating for music and arts education’s proper place in our schools during the pending educational transformation.
TOGETHER WE WILL:
Understand the language we can use to most effectively communicate with our school administrators, principals, superintendents, and
Learn how to effectively represent ourselves in front of our state and local leaders
Create a unified statement representing our voice as music and arts students that we will present to all decision-makers
Work to enhance the culture of our communities by improving the relationships our schools have with music and art students
Solidify a new approach to student leadership across all arts curriculum for when we return to school, while also setting the stage for future arts student leaders
BY SIGNING UP:
Any current or incoming music or arts education major will become equipped with skills to embed advocacy and leadership into being part of future curriculums.
Any incoming or current high school student participating in music or the arts will be equipped with the skills to create and own an enhanced student-led culture in their program.
The new reality is, education from Pre-K through college is going to drastically change as plans develop to begin the new school year. Together we must prepare to defend and advocate for every single one of our arts programs. Our voice matters, this is our education, we can influence change.
