While working on the final draft of the Performing Arts Education Overview – a study by Creative Trust and the Professional Arts Ontario Network for Education (PAONE) of the scope of arts education activities by music, theatre, dance and opera companies in Toronto and the GTA – I received my latest e-newsletter from Music Makes Us: Coalition for Music Education.
While I don’t want to jump the gun on revealing PAEO’s conclusions and recommendations, it’s clear that a well-organized collaborative approach to raising awareness and support for arts access for young people can be powerful and persuasive. Congratulations to new Coalition for Music Education Executive Director, Holly Nimmons. Keep up the good work!
The Performing Arts Education Overview, which was generously supported by the Ontario Ministry of Culture and Tourism, will be released publicly this year. Stay tuned for further details.
