Overview
Create CA is a statewide initiative to restore arts education to California’s schools. Create CA began with a Hewlett Foundation funded strategic planning process, and is now led by a coalition of five organizations (three of which are Hewlett Foundation grantees) and fiscally sponsored by the California Alliance for Arts Education. The coalition has developed a strong leadership group from across the education and arts education sectors in California, and will build support for recommendations in the State Superintendent of Public Instruction’s Blueprint for Creative Schools. Project funding will help Create CA leverage data from the Arts Education Data Project for a compelling statewide public will communications campaign in support of arts education.

Grants to this Grantee
for leadership transition  
The California Alliance for Arts Education (CAAE) promotes, supports and advocates for visual and performing arts education for preschool through post-secondary students in California schools. It is the only statewide organization that brings together all primary constituencies for arts education, annually serving over 100,000 artists, arts organizations, K-12 teachers, state and local education departments, and parents and PTAs. It is an acknowledged key leader in the arts education advocacy field and a powerful ally in statewide efforts to increase arts education in the public school system. With the imminent departure of its Executive Director, this grant would provide support during this critical transition, with a focus on building the organization’s capacity for short and long term fund development. (New, $20,000/1; 52% of project budget)
for support of the Advancing Arts Education project  
The California Alliance for Arts Education promotes, supports, and advocates for visual and performing arts education for preschool through post-secondary students in California schools. It is the only statewide organization that brings together all primary constituencies for arts education, annually serving more than 100,000 artists, arts organizations, K-12 teachers, state and local education departments, and parents and PTAs. The Alliance is a cornerstone grantee of the Hewlett Foundation’s arts education efforts, an acknowledged leader in the arts education advocacy field, and a powerful ally in statewide efforts to increase arts education in the public school system. The organization has undergone a major leadership change in the past year with policy director Joe Landon ascending to the executive director position. Renewed support to the Alliance would allow it to continue building on past successes, specifically by sustaining policy advocacy work at the state level and expanding its twenty-one Local Advocacy Networks by ten coalitions each year in order to unite local leadership groups in support of arts education.
