Welcome to the Pennsylvania Arts Education Network
The Pennsylvania Arts Education Network is a statewide coalition of arts, arts education, and advocacy organizations and individuals committed to working together to strengthen public and policymaker support for Arts Education in Pennsylvania.
The creation of the Network is one of the recommendations included in the Creating Pennsylvania’s Future Through the Arts and Education, a report published in March 2012 by The Education Policy and Leadership Center (EPLC). EPLC provides staff and other support for the Network. This unprecedented coalition respects the autonomy of its member organizations, but adds value to the work of each of them by promoting and facilitating much-needed voluntary collaboration that utilizes shared goals, strategies, messages, and activities.
The Network’s Public Policy Agenda
(April 2017) The Network’s Steering Committee has approved an updated 9-point Public Policy Agenda. These are actions that can be taken by state and school district officials to support arts education.
