The purpose of the Exposure program is to support attendance at high-quality performances and exhibits for students who would particularly benefit from these experiences. Students may be identified as priority communities for participation due to socio-economic status, geographic region, or other aspects of students’ life experiences that elevate the impact of having opportunities to engage with these cultural assets.
Artists involved in this grant category will demonstrate the highest level of rigor and commitment to craft, and their work will offer deep cultural resonance with the student communities to be served. Student artwork, whether prepared in advance or executed onsite, is not appropriate as the artistic focus of this grant category. The impact of student attendance at artistic events should be complemented by pre- and post-attendance activities, such as artist talkbacks, teaching artist workshops, and/or facility tours.
Projects should address the following Exposure program goals:
Increase student access to and participation in school-based arts education as part of coordinated efforts with school site leaders, district staff, and county Offices of Education.
Cultivate students’ appreciation for the arts and understanding of themselves as the next generation of arts patrons and participants. Promote culturally and linguistically responsive learning through the arts, using cultural knowledge to support the cultural assets of the local community and students’ positive self-identification within and respect for diverse cultures.
Develop long-term, mutually beneficial relationships between arts and educational organizations, teaching artists, and the youth and families in the communities they serve.
