Arts Outreach Conversation
Arts organizations play an important role in strengthening our communities. They truly build bridges by bringing people together, inspiring their thinking and celebrating our varying cultures. Research indicates that communities that focus on the arts have more civic and social engagement, improved child welfare and reduced poverty rates. In addition, children who receive arts education generally have higher GPAs, better test scores and lower dropout rates. By inspiring and encouraging individuals to embrace their creativity, we are offering them the tools to articulate their thoughts, ideas and dreams. Join art organization leaders from around South Carolina to discuss current outreach efforts and the impact these programs are having on their communities. Learn how your organization can become more engaged with the arts to benefit the people you serve.
