ArtsBridge America

Funded in March, 2008: $60000 for 2 years
The Dana Foundation grant supports several projects: training and placement of ArtsBridge Scholars in three states as teaching artists in under-performing K-12 classrooms; the compilation of training materials and tools utilized on each campus; the exchange and dissemination of best practices in scholar training throughout the ArtsBridge America campus network through an “ArtsBridge Training Toolkit”; and the development of an online ArtsBridge Community of Practice to facilitate exchanges among teaching artists. The ArtsBridge America national office (located at Lawrence University of Wisconsin) will serve as the lead campus for this three campus consortium of Lawrence University, SUNY Purchase College and the founding of a new program at the University of Delaware.
