Exchange ideas, discover resources, be inspired by creativity!

Whether we are hosting arts and craft activities at a booth in a local fair or an inspiring dialogue at a Community Exchange, there is a place for everyone to support the mission.

Activities of the Foundation’s Community Outreach Programs:

Community Exchange Gatherings

The Community Exchange Gatherings are organized during the school year to support parent advocacy, information sharing, and to inform and respond to BUSD’s arts education priorities for each school year. In a fun, casual gathering, you will hear the latest in arts education and join a community of dedicated volunteers and Arts Advocacy Leaders.  Click here for the next Community Exchange.


Advocacy Efforts

We track education policy, share information, and further arts education for all students as solution partners throughout the year. Advocacy efforts are supported by staff, the Board of Directors, the Arts Advocacy Leaders, and engaged parents or citizens. Want to know how decisions are made?

Participation in Community Fairs/Outreach Events

The Foundation attends and participates in various Fairs or Festivals to support volunteerism, engagement, or mission-based activities in the community. Community Fairs/Outreach events are managed by staff and supported by Foundation volunteers. There’s nothing like helping a child create a puppet or explore creativity. Join us!
