CREATE California Statewide Convening

CREATE CA January 30 & 31

We’re kicking off 2015 with a statewide convening of CREATE California to ignite collective impact and expand arts and creativity in California schools. Join us in Oakland on January 30 & 31, 2015 for workshop sessions, policy briefings and conversations to open up new opportunities for collaboration. We will be joined by Governor Jerry Brown, Apple University’s Randy Nelson, as well as students from the Oakland School for the Arts and the San Francisco Student Latin Jazz Youth Ensemble.

What is CREATE CA?

CREATE CA (Core Reforms Engaging Arts to Educate) is a unique statewide coalition of agencies, organizations and individuals partnering on an education reform movement that views arts education as an essential part of the solution to the problems facing California schools. Using a model of “collective impact,” CREATE CA is led by five leadership organizations and five individual elected members from the field. It is a model that has garnered interest from advocates in other states.

How is CREATE CA different than the California Alliance?

The California Alliance remains the state’s leading arts education policy and advocacy organization, but through the CREATE CA partnership we can advance a shared agenda with a multi-faceted, cross-sector approach. Each CREATE organization brings a unique expertise and network of members to the cause, from parents to school officials to arts providers and each individual CREATE members brings a special passion and set of experiences that bind our collective goals to work in the field.

We hope you will be a part of the movement! There is a place waiting for you at the convening!
