Join the Be An #ArtsHero team as we discuss the creative economy and our work as an organization, with a focus on arts education advocacy efforts. With the help of our guests, we will discuss how COVID-19 has impacted schools, learning, and arts education programming, with specific focus on equity of access, learning loss, and the benefits of arts integration, Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) and more!
