John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts - 2002
Funded in March, 2002: $60000 for 1 years
The Dana grant enabled the Kennedy Center to expand their "Changing Education Through the Arts" (CETA) project that is designed to help classroom teachers facilitate the arts in their classrooms. It is a three-year, systematic, self-sustaining professional development program. The Dana award funded the expansion to six more local schools, and documented the expansion to prepare for replication nationally. The third year of the project pairs artist mentors with the classroom teachers who have been trained in year one and two.
