tx rural arts integration partnership
The goals of Young Audiences of Houston's Texas Rural Arts Integration Partnership are to increase sustainable arts integration practices across high needs rural communities with low arts access. This project will benefit educators, administrators, students, and families through partnerships across Livingston ISD, Liberty ISD, Port Arthur ISD, West Orange-Cove CISD, Fort Davis ISD, and Palacios ISD. The arts integration programs led by Young Audiences of Houston teaching artists and arts partners provide an intersection of both arts and culture and core academic curriculum, targeting support to at-risk youth at each campus through the incorporation of the arts across the curriculum to support their development, education and well-being.
This partnership will serve approximately 18,414 PK-12 children across the six partnership school districts through collaborative programming that includes integrated programming to build sustainable arts integration knowledge and resources.
