Arts Education for Years to Come
In December 2010, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts chose Las Vegas as the fourth partner city for Any Given Child, a program that is creating a long-range arts education plan for students in Southern Nevada. Specifically tailored for the Clark County School District, Any Given Child will bring access, balance and equity to arts education for K-8 students. The program will incorporate existing resources of the Las Vegas school system, along with those of local arts organizations and the Kennedy Center to ensure that every child has the opportunity to receive a solid and meaningful arts education.
On January 27, 2012, the community arts team charged with developing the program publicly announced the phase one results of the Southern Nevada Any Given Child Initiative. The celebratory event announced survey results and goals for the collaborative project.
