Acts of Achievement: The Role of Performing Art Centers in Education, a 168-page publication, provides the first study of K-12 education programs offered by performing arts centers nationwide, and showcases 74 performing art center institutions, large and small, partnering with their local schools.
Performing arts centers, many for the first time, are expanding their missions to provide arts education for nearby schools, at the request of their communities. In many cases, artist residencies and other educational outreach projects represent the only arts programs available in schools.
The essay "Artists Residencies: Evolving Educational Experiences," a key component in the book, outlines the development of school residencies and offers four checklists for arts organization coordinators, artists, teachers, and school coordinators planning to develop residencies. The essay provides guidance for developing and improving school residencies.
