Join Seattle leaders and youth to discuss creativity, student success
You are invited to join Mayor Mike McGinn, Seattle Public Schools Chief Academic Officer Susan Enfield and a panel of Seattle students for a lively community forum about arts education, creative learning and student success.

What: The sixth annual Arts in Education Forum is a student-directed community forum about creative learning and student success. A panel of Seattle students will lead a discussion with Mayor Mike McGinn and Seattle Public Schools' Susan Enfield about how the arts engage, challenge and motivate young people.

What do students think about school and the world they will enter after school? How does studying the arts make a difference for students? What are Seattle Public Schools and the city of Seattle doing to provide equitable access to the arts and a well-rounded education for all students?

Bring your own questions for our panel of students and policymakers and learn more about how the city and Seattle Public Schools are partnering now to help ensure arts learning can be a part of a basic education for all students.
