Lift Every Student – Artists in Schools Residency Program
Any Given Child Jacksonville and the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville have partnered to develop an artist in residency program in which Jacksonville artists will be embedded in Duval County Public Schools and paired with educators to merge the arts with other academic areas. The first artists will be placed in residency during the 2017-2018 academic year. They will spend time with classes, one day a week for 20 weeks working on arts integrated projects and uplifting the history of Jacksonville. Applications are due before April 28th. A school residency training created and facilitated by teaching artists from John F. Kennedy Center will be offered in June.
