Who we are & What we do
DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative is a member service organization that engages our community through education programs support, professional development workshops, and collective impact efforts.
As a conduit organization, the Collaborative equips arts and humanities professionals with the resources, knowledge, and network that will improve their ability to effectively engage and educate public school students in Washington, DC.
Through our programs and services, we aim to ensure students have access to arts and humanities experiences that are culturally relevant, curriculum appropriate, and acknowledges various needs.
DC Collaborative constantly involves our diverse community in our decision-making. Through informal conversations, surveys, and other data-related strategies, the Collaborative collects information to continually evaluate our effectiveness and improve how we support our community’s work.
DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative was founded in 1998 by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and HumanitiesDC. Today, members represent cultural institutions, individual practitioners, and other related professionals in the DC region.
DC Collaborative has engaged more than 750,000 students in all eight wards in DC’s public education system (traditional and public charter).
