Overview
CREATE CA is a relatively new, statewide initiative to restore arts education to California’s schools. CREATE CA began with a Hewlett-funded strategic planning process, and is now led by a coalition of five organizations (three of which are Hewlett grantees) and fiscally sponsored by the California Alliance for Arts Education. The coalition has developed a strong leadership team 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 through statewide and regional convenings; the development of an affiliate program for partner organizations, such as the Education Trust-West; and support of the National Arts Education Data Project, which will provide detailed data about California students’ access to arts education resources in public schools. Renewed support will help CREATE CA move forward on its strategic goals, while building an infrastructure for sustainability and growth in the future

CREATE CA, fiscally sponsored by the California Alliance for Arts Education, is a statewide coalition to restore arts education in California’s schools. CREATE CA began with a Hewlett Foundation-funded strategic planning process in 2012, and is now led by a leadership council that includes five organizational members, three of which are foundation grantees. The elected members on the leadership council represent both the education and arts education sectors in California. CREATE CA supports the implementation of recommendations in the Blueprint for Creative Schools through statewide and regional convenings, dissemination of data on arts education access, and a statewide public will campaign for arts education.
