Putting the Arts in Surplus Schools. A Planning Workbook.
Educational Facilities Labs., Inc., New York, NY.
Addressed to arts organizations and public school districts, this guide comprises questionnaires and work sheets for step-by-step planning to use surplus schools for arts projects. An introduction alerts planners to the complex forces involved in reuse of surplus school space and outlines four common planning situations: an arts group actively seeking new space; an arts group alerted to a surplus school; a school building reuse committee investigating alternative uses for surplus facilities; and a community arts consortium broadly interested in improving the arts locally. Each chapter's questionnaire forms are introduced with reference to these varying scenarios. Included are forms for assessing the project's goals and problems, profiling the arts organizations involved, establishing space and location needs, profiling the school building, selecting programs and activities, testing the fit between space and program alternatives, computing space operating and maintenance costs, and summarizing space evaluation.
