Creativity Connects

Creativity Connects: Arts in Early Learning will bring together community leaders in five diverse cities to spark a dialogue about early learning through the arts. The project, funded through a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, is being implemented in partnership between Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts, a national leader in early childhood arts integration; and the Institute for Child Success (ICS) an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit research and policy organization.

The goals of the project are to:

  • Convene key stakeholders in the arts, education, business, social services, and philanthropy
  • Facilitate meaningful conversations about the effectiveness of early childhood arts integration
  • Foster the creation of actionable plans to incorporate the arts into early childhood classrooms
