Join the Pittsburgh Emerging Arts Leaders for an evening of networking and an engaging panel discussion about the state of arts education. Get an insider’s look at the current state of arts education through the eyes of local arts, foundation, and policy representatives. The current economic climate has led to many changes in the way in which arts education is presented, funded, and managed. The priorities of funders and arts education policy makers are shifting and arts educators have to adapt to these changes or risk funding cuts in their programs.
