ABOUT ARTS CORPS
Arts Corps is a multidisciplinary social justice organization in Seattle that provides free arts learning opportunities to young people from kindergarten through high school. Arts Corps’ mission is to unlock the creative power of youth through arts education and community collaboration. We offer arts integrated and culturally relevant learning opportunities in and out the school day with an emphasis on serving low-income youth of color and others facing systemic oppression. Through these programs and local and national leadership, Arts Corps addresses a critical opportunity gap in a region where race is the greatest determining factor in access to arts education.
The Creative Schools Initiative (CSI) is an intensive arts integration program aimed at addressing the racial and economic disparity in access to arts education by teaching artistic skills and creativity while strengthening academic learning and contributing to a liberatory classroom environment that fosters young people’s sense of belonging, connection, and mindsets for learning. This school year, Arts Corps is contributing to transformative school day learning for over 1,000 K-8 students in 7 schools.
ABOUT COYOTE CENTRAL
Coyote Central challenges young adolescents of every race and socio-economic background to build skills, creative thinking, self-awareness, and social awareness through hands-on projects with professionals in creative fields.
Since its founding in 1986, Coyote Central has built the creativity and self-awareness of over 15,000 middle-school youth of diverse races, economic backgrounds, family situations, and neighborhoods. Coyote is unique among Seattle nonprofits in focusing exclusively on early adolescence, when kids are first starting to figure out who they are and what they want to do in the world. As they learn the skills and tools of creative mediums, they realize their own capabilities and passions. Coyote teaching artists, who are all professionals in their field, model the dedication and perseverance of their creative professions and give youth a sense of what it means to make a career of creativity.
Coyote also encourages social awareness, asking teens to reflect on their cultural identity and their role in the social fabric of their community. Working in teams with youth of different backgrounds builds their cultural competence and respect for the values of people different from themselves.
