UC San Diego ArtsBridge

Funded in March, 2005: $75000 for 1 years
The Dana grant will enable existing ArtsBridge America programs at UCSD, the University of California, Berkeley (UCB), and the University of Utah to collaborate with two new programs at Purchase College, State University of New York and Lawrence University of Wisconsin to develop a curriculum for training teaching artists; and to disseminate the successful arts education outreach program developed at UC Irvine to other areas. The grant will fund training and placement of ArtsBridge America scholars and the subsequent evaluation of the training model utilized on each campus. This consortium of universities will be working towards a prototype for teaching artist training to be used as a national model.
