This year, the Aftab Committee is partnering up with Americans for the Arts for Arts in Education Week that takes place between 9-15th of September. National Arts in Education Week is a Congressionally designated celebration of the transformative power of the arts in education. The field of arts education annually joins together to bring visibility to the cause, unify stakeholders with a shared message, and provide the tools and resources for local leaders to advance arts education in their communities.
In support of Arts in Education Week, the Aftab Committee is launching its own campaign advocating for an expansion of arts education nationwide and raising awareness in communities, especially the Iranian-American community, regarding the importance of arts education and its influence on artists' lives. If you would like to add your voice to this campaign, Please send us one short sentence and/or paragraph about “Arts Education” starting with “I love arts education because…” and attach a picture of yourself holding a sign with your sentence and #BecauseOfArtsEd and #ArtsEdWeek. You can email your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org . All submissions will be shared on our social media in support of this week.
