We provide a collective voice advocating for support for arts and humanities education. Advocacy is critical to ensuring high-quality arts education for all DC schoolchildren. The DC Collaborative dedicates substantial time and resources to disseminate information, provide public testimony on behalf of Members collective interests in arts and humanities education, and convene arts education supporters. Along with member organizations and partner institutions, the DC Collaborative advocates for policies and practices that sustain and strengthen high-quality arts education opportunities and programs.
