Shared Leadership

Arts for All's goals represent the collective vision of the arts education community – including arts education organizations, teachers, parents, policymakers and students – in Los Angeles County. Making all of the arts – dance, music, theatre, media arts and visual arts – part of the core curriculum in the County's school systems can occur only through the aligned participation of a wide array of stakeholders. 

Arts for All has been a collaborative effort from its beginnings. The Executive Committee guides our work toward these goals and is responsible for establishing community partnerships, setting priorities for the collaboration and creating funding recommendations for Arts for All's Pooled Fund.
