Washington, DC -- The public is invited to join a webinar about the role of collective impact in advancing arts education on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. EDT. John Kania, managing director of social impact consultants FSG, will present on his research into the uses of collective impact by the social sector, followed by a discussion with NEA Director of Arts Education Ayanna Hudson. Both Kania and Hudson will also take questions from the public.
As defined by FSG, collective impact is the commitment of a group of actors from different sectors to a common agenda for solving a complex social problem. This discussion will examine how collective impact can help federal, state, and local leaders move forward in a common direction. John Kania, along with Mark Kramer, is the author of the Winter 2011 article in the Stanford Social Innovation Review on the benefits of using collective impact in the social sector.
This is the first in a series of webinars that will examine different issues and innovations in the arts education field.
