The DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative is a member service organization founded in 1998 by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and Humanities Council of Washington DC along with DC Public Schools and other local cultural institutions and funders. Today, members represent 120 cultural institutions and individual practitioners in the DC region, working together to advance equitable access to arts and humanities education in the District of Columbia.
The DC Collaborative has served more than 750,000 students in the DC public education system (traditional and public charter) in all eight wards of the District through its Education Programs, including its legacy experiential learning program Arts and Humanities for Every Student, the Distance Learning Resource Database, as well as thousands of educators through its Professional Development initiatives. In service to the greater DC arts and humanities education community, the DC Collaborative facilitates community-wide strategic planning in service to our shared mission articulated above expanding equitable access to arts and humanities education.
