The Pennsylvania Arts Education Network is a coalition of arts, arts education, and advocacy organizations and individuals working together to strengthen public and policymaker support for Arts Education in Pennsylvania.

The Network was created after the Arts and Education Initiative’s Spring 2012 report, Creating Pennsylvania’s Future Through Arts and Education, found a need for a statewide partnership for arts education advocacy.  Directed by a Steering Committee of influential arts and education organizations across the state, The Pennsylvania Arts Education Network is currently being operated through the Education Policy and Leadership Center.
