UNITED ARTISTS FOUNDATION
WHAT WE DO
We're bringing the arts to schools by hiring teaching artists and art specialists. We are making successful strides in raising awareness and in our advocacy for the sustained presence of comprehensive fine arts programs in schools. We're also training teachers to integrate the arts into their curricular instruction. Our work in training visual and performing artists to become teaching artists enables us to employ them for public school workshops and intensive, two-week "artist in residencies."
WHY WE DO IT
Gaping holes exist in public schools with regards to comprehensive and enriching fine arts programs. In most classrooms, the visual and performing arts are not being integrated into instruction of the core curriculum.
The fine arts play an essential role in education. Due to the circumstances of public education policy and the prioritization of funding, most students across the United States and abroad are not receiving the education that is deserved.
Multicultural fine arts are severely under appreciated by society. Visual and performing artists of all genres tend to suffer financially. Achieving stability in an arts related field is very difficult. Talented fine artists are in need of deserved income from jobs relating their talents.
Our mission is to conquer these cultural crises.
In collaboration with artists, educators, organizations and advocates, we're bringing the arts into schools by hiring teaching artists for "artist in residencies" and by training teachers to effectively integrate the arts into their curricular instruction. We also train professional visual and performing artists to become teaching artists, enabling us to employ them in schools.
We are active advocates, working at both the grassroots level and with policymakers. We collaborate with and support existing arts education organizations so as to ensure that we are furthering the efforts of those who also work tirelessly towards the betterment of education, society and the world at large.
United Artists Foundation sees that humanity's common appreciation for the visual and performing arts can have the power to unify polarized societies. We envision communities of professionals, equally respected and valued across all industries, intermingling and developing the empathy, humility and creativity necessary for society to continually improve.
