EPLC is pleased to sponsor, in partnership with organizations across Pennsylvania, a spring series of Arts and Education Regional Community Forums. The Community Forums present opportunities to learn about AEI’s recently released report: Creating Pennsylvania’s Future through the Arts and Education, and to help decide priorities and next steps for advocacy activity.
Join EPLC staff, artists, educators, policymakers, and leaders from school districts and cultural organizations who are coming together to build awareness about the crucial role of the arts in Pennsylvania’s schools and communities. Learn how to get involved with upcoming AEI advocacy programs in your area, and help to build a public policy agenda for the arts and arts education in 2012!
The Community Forums are free and open to the public, but do RSVP to reserve a seat by emailing AEI Director,
Jordan Crosby: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration and light refreshments begin at 6:00 p.m.
