Building Partnerships in the Arts. Art as Necessity: The Cultural Community and Urban School.
Fishman, Ted C.
In describing the efforts and goals of a 1991 conference, this document presents guidelines for the development of collaborative relationships between schools, arts organizations, and funders. It is indicated that collaborations are necessary for meeting the cultural and educational needs of urban children. At a time when resources for both the arts and education are strained, collaboration offers a way to bolster both. In "Building Partnerships in the Arts" (Ted C. Fishman), the case for collaboration is made and essential points of agreement delineated. These are (1) a target population; (2) specific program activities; (3) objectives; (4) assessment by partners; (5) evaluation of effectiveness with target audience; and (6) establishment of a time-line.
