With support from the U.S. Department of Education, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts has launched a three-year data initiative in partnership with Chicago-based Ingenuity to bring Ingenuity’s, artlook®, to six Any Given Child cities starting in 2019.
The goal of the initiative is to further expand student access to the arts in public schools by providing each participating community with artlook® — benefitting the communities on a local, practical level as well as making it possible for the Kennedy Center to do a wider national study on arts access in public schools.
Ingenuity is a cultural data hub and collective impact agency focused on advancing equity, access, and quality in the arts for public schools students. Ingenuity launched artlook in 2012 and it has been used to great success since in Chicago Public Schools, the nation’s third largest school system.
artlook ® is an interactive mapping platform and software that allows school districts of all sizes to collect, map and analyze data regarding the availability and distribution of arts staffing, funding and services on a school-by-school basis.
