Arts In Education Week is This Week!

In July of 2010, the United States House of Representative passed House Resolution 275 designating the second week of September to be “Arts in Education week.” The Alliance Theatre is proud to celebrate National Arts in Education Week, September 13-19, 2015. We are excited to shine the spotlight on our Education programs throughout the week and in particular where our programs align with the recommendations made by the Governor Nathan Deal’s Arts Learning Task Force.
The H. Con. R. 275 states, “Whereas art is integral to the lives of many United States citizens and can improve the vitality of communities and the Nation; and Whereas the week beginning on the second Sunday of September would be an appropriate week to designate as Arts in Education Week: Now, therefore, be it.”

Through our outstanding programming we reach students of all ages through many different avenues; this week we are sharing some very specific examples of how our programs already align with the four themes constructed for the Governor’s Arts Learning Task Force recommendations: Access to Arts Learning, Quality Arts Instruction, Support for Effective Arts Learning, and Resourceful and Innovative Approaches to Arts Learning.

Without using the words in your job title, what do you do at the Alliance?
"I guess you can call me the theatre therapist."

To mark the end of the Alliance Stage as we know it, and to welcome the new era with the start of the big renovation, Pearl Cleage, our Mellon Playwright in Residence, wrote a piece to commemorate this special occasion.
