Any GIven child indy

Over the next five years (2016-2021), the Arts Council of Indianapolis is working to ensure that every student in Indianapolis Public Schools (K-8) has the opportunity to have transformative encounters with the arts. Any Given Child Indy is a collective impact partnership with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Mayor’s Office of Indianapolis, and the Superintendent’s Office of IPS that brings diverse sectors of our community together to develop a plan for integrating high-quality arts instruction into all IPS schools. Any Given Child Indy is a five-year incremental process designed to ensure that 100% of Indianapolis students (K-8) have equitable access to the creative arts. The Arts Council has a talented team dedicated to this project who share a passion for ensuring access and equity for all students in grades K-8. Over the next five years we will work with community leaders to: 

  1. Ensure that all 22,000 IPS K-8 students have a field trip or artist-in-school each semester.
  2. Connect 100% of IPS arts teachers with training by local and national arts organizations.
  3. Advocate to ensure that all 58 IPS K-8 schools have at least one arts teacher.
