We Are What We Art

The National Guild for Community Arts Education supports and advances lifelong learning opportunities in the arts. They foster the creation and development of community arts education organizations by providing research and information resources, professional development, networking opportunities, funding, and advocacy on behalf of the field. They believe that involvement in the arts is essential to individual fulfillment and community life and that arts education enriches individual lives and improves communities.
The video featured below speaks not only to the benefit of providing and enhancing arts education opportunities for all, but also — as a youth-led media piece (produced and edited by the young artist, C├ęsar Martinez, during the National Guild's 2012 Conference for Community Arts Education in Dallas, TX) — illustrates what is possible when you engage the unique creativity of young people.
